Laguna II - How to remove tailgate


Just bought a Laguna II hatch with an accident damaged rear tailgate. The tailgate is probably beyond economical repair and needs a new tailgate. They are cheap enough on Ebay but the tailgate isn'd held on by nuts/bolts it appears to be rivitted on. Anybody know how to get these rivits off and new ones on?

Alternatively, if i go down a backstreet bodyshop repairer, any ideas on how many hours/cash it will be to take old one off and fit a new one assuming no painting and no removal/fitting of glass.

Thanks guys.

If you look on the headlining you should see 2 covers by the hatch that should reveal the nuts to remove and adjust the tailgate
