    Remove interior trim, remove chrome trim (4 nuts) from inside, then remove light housing

    The whole cover has to come off the tail gate the screws not accessible from the tiny hole, it is however you have to start from the top and remove each piece as the clips are hidden under the previous piece of trim. So very top, remove, remove two hidden push wedge type clip, remove sides, going around the window. Also when removing the chrome trim you have to disconnect the camera when it is hanging from the removed chrome piece as it is unlikely you can reach from the inside

    You will need an extension to get to the tiny nuts as they will be really far behind the sheet metal brace for the chrome piece

    If you wait a day I'll throw a video on youtube, on how to remove it. Plastic trim comes off in less then 5 mind and with the correct tools chrome be off in 5 also

    well i pulled the trim off a bit just to try, it seems farily similar to the prev gen ( which has tons of videos to watch), gotta pop out the tailgate handle/button too. I am hoping once i get trim off it will be easy to see which bolts to un-do!

    Not the greatest video

    No narration hut you should get the idea, I've pointed out most of the screws out but may have missed some
