The handle is super easy to service.
Remove the screws from the inside side of the tailgate. their should be 2 clips that hold the rods (that go to each side of the release mechanisms) they can be released with your fingers.
then the entire lock assembly should come out from the outside of the tailgate.
you can then cycle it to determine where to add the lubricant. silicone grease would be better than silicone spray. but hey prob some wheel bering grease would be ok too. best luck!
