Then I bent out the trim from the corner till I could just get my hand inside the tailgate (caused some damage to the trim but not too bad) Once inside you can feel the rod leading from the handle and you pull this towards the centre and it releases the fastening. Then repeat on the other side and the door will open allowing you to remove the top screws and take off the trim properly. Good luck.
Now my trim is refitted it looks OK and better than a couple of holes in it I think.
Moonmothshadow saves the day although there were moments when i could have given up,but i thought if its been done then i can do it!! The final problem was just dry linkage fom solenoid to the end of the cables{not rods on this occasion].Im once again very greatful for your advice and cant believe it is finally over Melvyn
