Tailgate question

Noob question here... How do you get into the tailgate ? I removed my spare tire carrier but just kinda shoved the wire for the 3rd light in there. Id like it to be more organized ... I see theres a grill on the inside of the tailgate , I was thinking it had to have something to do with that.

Thanks a lot !

You are right on the inside that grill will pop off.

When you have the tailgate open, on the inside of the door, there is a long black plastic piece and a smaller triagular shaped plastic piece. They both will pop off. The smaller one will lead you directly to where the third brake light connector is. It's a light grey connector that unclips. Then you can remove the wiring by popping out the rubber gasket. Replace with a plastic cap and no more wire.
