My daughter just bought her first car - a lovely blue 05 CR-V. She is thrilled with it. It's been pretty well taken care of but the tailgate handle doesn't work. It looks like it was hit by something. The outside handle looks fine and moves freely but doesn't "catch" on anything to open the tailgate.
I have removed the interior panel and can see the opening mechanism. I can open the window hatch (via button up front) and reach in and manually open the tailgate by squeezing the latch mechanism. I suspect there is some kind of bar or other connection that goes from the door handle to the opening mechanism. I have studied the pdf diagram of the latch but I can't quite tell which part to order.

I'd like to avoid ordering the whole assembly if possible. Does anyone have familiarity with this problem? Any idea which part(s) I should order?
