Re: completely replacing entire tailgate
Renault have a nasty habit of chopping and changing wiring colour codes so don't be suprised if you discover differences. It may be wise to trace the current wiring to where they connect before dismantling or cutting.
I would agree inside the boot lid would probably be the best place to splice the cables - should be a bit more accesable I would think plus you could leave the wires a bit longer to faciliate access, etc.
