The tailgate lock screws on my wife's 2005 CRV were loose, so I tightened them snug.

The tailgate closed okay but when she went to open the tailgate later it was locked, so she used her key to unlock it and then the key got stuck in the unlocked position. The tailgate open, but her key was stuck, so she unscrewed the screws and was able to get the key out. After the screws were put back in the door will no longer close, probably because the lock is in the locked position.

What can I do to get things working again? Picture of lock in current position.

You will need to insert a screwdriver there on the latch while someone pull on the handle the latch should go to its home or unlatch position. Let me know.

Where in the lock do I put the screwdriver and do I need to move it while the other person pulls on the handle?

Thx very much for your help.
