Have a look for any plastic covers which clip over retaining bolts (usually around the edges of the trim), plus, there may be a torx bolt in where the inside handle is located (the bit you would use for pulling the tailgate shut).
Haven't done such work on your model of car - but that's where I'd start looking.
You may well have a few plastic pop-studs located around the trim, use gently applied force to release them, as they are intended for single-use only (but can be re-used if you are careful).
Hope that helps,
This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
