Question 93 GMC PU - Tailgate will not open

One of the pins will not disengage from the sidewall to allow the tail gate to open. I appears that the rod/cable has broken away from the handle. Can this be repaired or does the entire tailgate need to be replaces. Also is there any trick to get the tailgate opened in this situation?

remove the handle unit and the cable or rod will be accesable to pull by hand.
1 side at a time. if it off on the latch end need to get sonthing slim at the latch end and jimy it.
All parts are replaceable by themselves. some are even at aftermarket brands..
