Hey friends. It's Len here from 1A Auto. Today we're going to be working on our 2006 Toyota 4Runner and I want to show you how to remove and install your rear tailgate grab strap. Sometimes they go bad, tear, get chewed up by a dog, anything's possible. You might have to replace it. If you need any parts, check us out, Thanks.

Okay, so we're inside the trunk area. Once you get this hanging down, right here's a little plastic cover. Just going to give that a little pop. Comes right off. Right under there, there's either a 10 millimeter headed bolt or you can use a Phillips head screwdriver. I'm going to use 10 millimeter. Remove that. We'll leave the bolt right with it. Set it aside.

We have our bolt. You can either use your 10 or your Phillips head. All right. I'm going to use my 10, sorry. Put it right up into the hole here. Should want to tighten right up. That feels awesome. We'll take this. You've got your little tab right here. That's going to slide right in, and then you're just going to push this up, just like that. We'll grab our gear out of the back here or anything that you don't want in there. Grab this, pull it down, close the trunk.
