    Cant remove tailgate, help needed plz!

    im trying to switch my slightly dented tailgate for a new one, but cant work out how to unplug the electrics to the brakelight, cant find where its connected, do i have to strip out the panels in the bootlid?

    Also are the hinges the same as the door hinges. do i have to whack the pins out with something??

    cheers

    Get the panels off the tailgate making sure you remove the plastic around the edge, then you can unplug epectricals.

    Hinges, yes, knock em out.

    PLEASE TRY AND GET SOMEONE TO HELP YOU

    It's heavy...I struggled on my own, much much easier with help

    thanx mate sorted all the wiring out and moved the pins abit ready for a mate to give me a lift with it over the weekend.

    thinking i might have problems threading the wiring back through the new tailgate though, was really tight pulling it out!
