Is it one of the struts that support it that is broken?

think so, it slams down and won't stay up

I don't really know....have a google. Can you tighten the struts or at least get at them to replace them if necessary?

Here is one answer to a google question;

"Its because one or both of the gas struts that support the tail gate when its open has lost pressure, you have to get them replaced they cannot be repaired."

found some online, (hopefully) one last bump to see if anyone else has done themselves
