Thank you for your response. I've just gotten your eMail. Since entry; I have viewed J24595-C, and think/hope I'm past that point. But still the problem remains.
However, the above is [u:56af5b5aa1][i:56af5b5aa1]Preceeded by:[/u:56af5b5aa1][/i:56af5b5aa1] Remove speaker grilles from trim finish panel by carefully releasing plastic clips at top of each grille. Remove speaker grilles. Remove screws beneath grilles retaining upper end of trim panel to lift gate inner panel..[I:56af5b5aa1]& it continues to direct me to 'Disconnect lift gate lock actuator electrical connector. See Fig 2[/i:56af5b5aa1] = crtsyOf. General Motors -zoom of [u:56af5b5aa1]just[/u:56af5b5aa1] lock mechanism - (listed under " Lift Gate Lock Motor" )
Mitchell then considers top 1/3 of the 'trim panel' removed; giving [u:56af5b5aa1]open access[/u:56af5b5aa1] to next = 'cargo lights' which would then be just within an inch inside top of the final 2/3 'trim panel.'
But with my one piece with no [u:56af5b5aa1]open access[/u:56af5b5aa1], reaching in from side or top, while gently tipping the whole piece away as far as I can, with semingly ONLY the 'pull strap' or 'inner handle' attaching it, still not enough room to access " cargo lights' nor enough to see inside for access to " strap/handle' connect. It's not 'bolted' all the way through, only two 'bumps/dimples' (inside->out) behind license plate on a solid one piece(?) Outer shell of lift gate What a headache over two connections.
Could "plastic retaining studs from grommets in inner panel" be referring to the connectors for the two sides of the " strap/handle'? To then use Garnish Clip remover J24595-C? Have no idea how to reach it though. Or, used on " inserts'? Or forget J.-C, I've already done what it was for, and focus on just the " strap/handle' removal.
So I put all the screws back in, and the vertical strips, and I wait, for people like you to help. I really do appreciate it too. Sorry I got your response so late. I would very much appreciate you checking on it for me. Thanks again.
