You have two opportunities to remove a lift gate/tailgate....yours and the junkyard before installing the newer one. You will end up being more experienced than most people. Or you can bring the lift gate/tailgate to the body shop that might be painting it.

I did this on a 3rd gen. Glad I had a couple of helpers hold the gate while removing and installing. It's heavier than you may think.

Had no instruction manual. Must remove the interior panel. Unclip the wiring harness from each conectior. Pull the wire harness out of the door. Unbolt the door. (Repeat bacwards)

I took photos as I removed things. That way you know how it goes back together.
