I don't know why they wouldn't, unless it's damaged the switch assembly. Even then, I think it's entirely plausible that they could accept the damage as related to the problem. I'd probably push for a replacement or repaired tailgate as well. From what I understand, the "fix" is soldering a connection in the harness.

I need to get that tailgate recall done. Problem is, my tailgate came down twice on it's own... while towing my flatbed trailer. So I have damage to my tailgate due to a defect from Ford. Will they fix the damage under this recall? Who knows.
A couple other members had the same issue. One opened into a closed garage door causing damage and the other opened into a 5th wheel while towing. Ford told the 5th wheel owner to go through insurance but insurance denied the claim due to the recall. The other didn’t post what happened but only had scratches so maybe, they buffed out.
