    Wife's 87 740 wagon tailgate won't open, tried the key and the little lever
    in the back. Am I in for some contortionist type stuff in the back to get
    this thing open??? TIA dino

  2. I've had this issue before. The rubber seal appears to stick to the boot
    lid. Just keep 'working' it it will go. When you've done that get some
    baby wipes and clean the rubber seal. It (sort of) did it again a couple
    of months later (last week in fact) and a mate suggested using WD-40 (or
    similar) on a wrag and wipe it on the seal. So far, so good.

    Hope that helps,
