Tailgate Trim removal
This was a explanation on how to fit an internal tailgate release. However mine failed after a while! Indeed it jammed up the door!!! So I have removed that part of the album. I have left the pictures of the trim removal for reference purposes. Hope it is still of use...
EDIT: Put some photos back for reference. 2/8/10

Ok, 1st thing to do is remove the single screw behind this door handle trim. Released by pushing forward and pulling away...

This is the screw. A simple X point screw.

I started at one corner and pulled the trim away. Here you see 1 popper stayed put and the other came out properly!

Worked my way along the bottom. Being very careful due to the dubious Mitsubishi plastic quality!!!

All removed. Now just the filthy black sticky stuff to deal with. Be very careful not to get any where you don't want it!!!

With the plastic removed we are able to see what's going on...

I guess that hole is still there!!! I did fit a standard old release knob on this to make it look a little better...
