As always, recommended to remove neg battery terminal but this can cause more problems than it solves.

Remove tail gate interior panel, held on by screws.

Slacken the 2 retaining nuts and remove the bolt from the lock cover protector.

Release the securing clip and disconnect the wiring connector from the release switch.

Working through the aperture in the tailgate undo the release switch mounting bracket nuts .

From outside the tailgate withdraw the tailgate release switchfrom the tailgate.

Then the imortal words.........refitting is a reverse of removal!

Worth getting a manual, cheaper on ebay .

A problem well stated is a problem half solved !
Currently in davesss's garage:
2002 Laguna Sports Tourer 1.8 Dynamique Moondust VF1KGOB, Fiat Siecento Micheal Schumaker, Kawasaki KLE M/Cycle and a cheap Mountain Bike.
