I tried to search but I couldn't find anything. I want to put a wireless backup camera on the license plate and I realize that I will have to take off the panels and run the wires. I was just wondering how to do it and how hard it is.

Thanks!

Just pry it off in one end and it will pop loose. Just continue all the way around. There's one torx screw for the handle. Remove that one first.

Start with the top half first. And when the liftgate is open start with the very top, should be 4-5 clips (been a while). Proceed down the side until you get to the center section. Like already stated remove the screw for the latch, and there is a little plastic "screw" that needs to come out. This should get the top half off, bottom half is easier everything just pops off, be careful with clips in that are on the flat section as it is easy to break them, or the cover. Also be careful around the defroster wires, they are not held on the window with much and can break off easily.
