I had the same problem with my 02 Sequoia. To get the tailgate open and replace the broken handle you will have to remove the tailgate's panel cover.
The panel is affixed to the tailgate with about six to eight plastic stays on the back side of the panel.
You will need a "L"-shaped tool (The tool looks like a screw driver with its tip bent one-to-two inches.) that can be inserted under the panel's edge. Start @ the right, or left bottom corner.
After you pull the panel's second plastic stay away from the tailgate you will be able to use your hand to pull the rest of the stays away from the tailgate then push up on the panel to remove it.
After the panel is removed you will be able to see where the cable feeds into the broken handle. Use a pair of needle-nose pliers to pull the cable and open the tailgate. Toyota charges $100.00 for a new handle.
Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable.
Remove the rear wiper arm from the rear wiper motor output shaft.
Using a small thin-bladed tool, gently pry at the notch in the base of the rear wiper motor output shaft bezel to unsnap the nut cover from the bezel .Be certain to take proper precautions to protect the outer tailgate panel and its paint finish from damage during this procedure.

You can get to the mechanism from the inside panel of the tailgate-- by

There are to guide cables, one on each end of the tailgate. Remove these by prying the small clip upwards so that it slips over the post. Remove both cables in this fashion. Now if you look to your right as you face the rear of the truck, you'll notice that the pivot point of the tailgate is slotted and comes out at a 45* angle give or take a few. Once this side is free just pull the tailgate towards the right side again and it will come off. Reverse procedure to reinstall the gate. Thanks, Dana
No there is no bypass. The Motor in my tailgate crapped out on me last year partly to do with a rusted out tailgate that let water in! I replaced my tailgate, but in my research found that the only way to get the window down was to remove the inside panels on the tailgate, un screw the cover plate, and then unbolt the motor to allow the window to drop enough to open the tailgate. Once the tailgate is down it will be easier to see the internals and remove the motor. Hope this helps you
