Get a trim panel removal tool at an autoparts store. It's a thin metal piece that slides between the panel and framework where the plastic clips hold the panel on. Slide it in at each clip....and pop each one off. There may be some trim screws also.

Lift gate open light will not shut off/rear wiper will not work


that sounds like a wiring problem , i'm not sure if the wiring for the wiper is a loom that connects to the liftgate near the hinge area, or is a connector plate by the lock catch ,you will be able to see which it is as very obvious between the two systems , if is the wiring loom look for signs of wear etc , the light is usually by a button switch that is activated when opening liftgate if no button switch visable then it will most likely have a mercury switch inside the liftgate , either way will need to remove the gate interior trim to check out the problem and also you will then be able to check if the wiper motor is getting power , i should have started with check the rear wiper fuse , hope this helps
