In this video, we're going to remove or actually take apart the rear hatch. We already removed it in a previous video, so we're going to take the panel off and the spoiler and things like that. Tools you'll need are a 7/16"� socket, a 10 millimeter socket with a ratchet, and probably an extension, as well as a Phillips screwdriver, and some blankets and something to support the rear window on.

We're here. We're looking at the rear hatch, the glass, and the panel itself, upside down. We're going to remove the panel from the class because we want to paint the panel. We don't want to paint the glass, and we're going to start doing that by removing this interior panel, which is just a series of six Phillips screws right here along the edge. We'll remove those first.

We'll just fast forward here as I'm removing those Phillips screws. They are pretty protected from the elements so they should come out pretty easy on any car. Once we have those removed, what you do is you want to lift up and push forward on this panel. The panel comes off.

Now we're going to remove four more screws. There's two here on this side and then two on the other side, and then we're going to remove these eight nuts here, and then the glass will separate from the panel. I have screws out, and I put them in a little bag where I have all my hardware for safekeeping. Take a 13 millimeter socket. In here there's just a wire clipped to that panel, so I just pinch the clip and push it through.

Now I'm using a stool to support the glass. Just slowly basically pull up on the glass, push down on the panel, and you can feel it just start breaking loose. Just apply even pressure and eventually it will pretty much just break loose. It has some urethane sealing it to the glass and it breaks loose. Then, pull it right off.

Now I want to make sure that we get all the nylon washers off the panel as well as the nylon washers off the glass, so I'm just speeding through. Take all those out, and put them in my plastic bag for safekeeping.

Now I'm going to remove the spoiler from the panel. I'm just using a screwdriver and prying out those plugs that cover the bolts and putting them in my plastic bag. Keeping the work pace up here, with a 10 millimeter socket with a ratchet and extension, undo all those bolts that hold the spoiler, and as well as I remove the nuts that hold the latch mechanism onto the panel. Here's a close-up of how that's on there. This is angled towards the rear. That's over towards the driver side of the vehicle.

Just end here, put all the nuts from the spoiler and the latch in the bag, and then I have a larger bag to hold that as well as the latch mechanism.
