Tailgate Removal

The tailgate can be removed to allow for different loading situations.

Assistance may be needed with the removal to avoid damage to the vehicle.

On vehicles with a Rear Vision Camera, it must be disconnected before removing the tailgate. See Rear Vision Camera (RVC) on page 9‑68 for more information.

To remove the tailgate:

1. Raise the tailgate slightly, pull out and hold the cable retaining clip (A). Push the cable (C) up and off of the bolt (B). Repeat on the other side.

On vehicles with the tailgate assist feature, raise the tailgate nearly all the way to the closed position prior to removing the left edge.

3. Move the tailgate to the right to release the left edge.

Reverse this procedure to reinstall the tailgate. Make sure the tailgate is secure.
