Re: completely replacing entire tailgate
Apart from the head lining there is also the difficulty of threading it down the rear pillar and also hoping the plug connections are the same.
Personally if it were mine I would use the existing loom (assuming its in good nick). Take a few photos or sketches of the run and location inside the existing tailgate so you can route it correctly.
