Hi. I'm Mike from 1AAuto. We've been selling auto parts for over 30 years!

We're going to remove this lower inside tailgate trim. We're going to start by popping out these cargo lights, by just pushing in the plastic trim tool. You can get these from 1AAuto.com. Just kind of go on this side and pop it down. Push the lock in. Pull it out of the lamp. Put that lamp aside, so I can reuse it. Do the same for the other side. Put that aside.

Now we're going to get these four push clips out of here. Here's a little tip. This push clips that have a flush head to them, you can actually push them in. It seems counterintuitive, but you push them in, and then you can pry them out.

I'm just going to pop these pockets out, these little grab handle pockets. Take the plastic pry tool. Put it in the top, and they'll pop right out. Repeat this for the other side. Pull it right out.

Take my prying tool, kind of wedge it into the gap here. Pry it down to pop it off the clips. Work my way around. All right, then we go do the other side. Do the same thing: just kind of work it in there. Pry it down. You basically just have to snap all the clips free, and then it will come right out.

We're going to put this back up into place. I also need to feed these wires out, for the lights. Reach up, those are going to go in here. I'm going to line those up like that. Grab this one down here. Now I can get this. Settle it up like this, and I can start to push these ends in, just like that. We'll go right along the edge. Push all the clips back in.

Take out push clips, put them back into place. Push them back out like that. Push them back in.

These handles are marked up, so they'll go in the up direction. Do the same for the other side.

We plug our lights back in, just like that. Slide them back into place. They'll snap in. That works again. Do that for the other side. Plug it in. You can tell, the wider part is where this wider part is going to go, because these are both the same, left and right. Pop it in, just like that.
