HiCustomer The first thing you need to do is pop the cover off that goes around the outside of the handle. Then, the handle is removed by taking the bolts out of the inside of the tailgate. Then you unhook the linkage rods. To remove the end latches you unbolt them and they pull out of the side of the tail gate edges, with the linkage rod still connected. Thanks
