    Default Replacing tailgate

    So as per my thread on Thursday, rear window smashed. Had to get a whole new tailgate for £40. No how do i remove the old one? I have removed all trim, and locks from the smashed on and onto the new one, Cleaned, clayed, polished and sealed it

    Is it just knock the 2 pins out the hinges and get 2 other people to hold it up? then once pins removed lift it away?

    The only other thing I can think of is to remove the wiring harness at the hinge.

    All done. Well the wires were too hard to feed through for a saturday afternoon after an 8 hour shift so maybe tomorrow. To think i would have a totally different tailgate with glass just 2 days after it smashed is crazy. Its even debadged now. for £40, just gotta fit my VXR spoiler
