    I expect 4 bots 2 per hinge and then the struts to remove pull down head lining.

    If it's the same as a Signum, the biggest issue is your wiring. You'll need to disconnect it and pass it through the hole in the body work.

    As for the tailgate. Just remove gas struts. Remove the retaining clips on the end of the hinge pins, and knock them out. Lift away fromth car.
