Question Changing Espace Tailgate... Easy?

On Monday I closed the tailgate window on my 1999 Grand Espace 3.0 and a few seconds later the glass shattered. A strut had popped out and hit the glass. An hour and several deep cuts later the glass was removed and a nice blue check shower curtain was taped into place. At the time I was packing up the car to drive home from our family holiday in Normandy!! 348 miles later I have made it home with shower curtain still in place! Two questions guys...

1) Are all Espace tailgates from this year the same - i.e. Espace Vs Grand Espace? So can I buy any 1999 Espace tailgate to fit?

2) Anybody fitted one before? Is it fittable with a mate?
