The panel has pressure tabs on the top and static tabs on the bottom. To remove it, push down on the top of the plastic panel, once the top is out, lift up on the bottom. Thanks for the solution, i just picked up a new clip at Kragens, cost was 4.99, on the shelf, receipt lists it as Lock Linkage Clip, good for Chrysler and GM.

There is a panel on tailgate, remove it and makes sure the long steel rods (2) are connected to both the handle and the latches

Systematically cut it out with a sawzall reciprocating saw.

Cut the post that the latch attaches to when closed, if you can get at it with the blade.

Then, replace the post.

May need a long prybar to open if, simply stuck, while operating the opening button or lever.

Good luck with this replacement of the tail gate.
