Good evening and welcome to JustAnswer!!

Do you have a cover on the bed? If so then you will need to get in thru it because the only way your getting into the tailgate is by removing the cover on the inside to release the latch..

Let me know,

No I don't have a cover on it...I have a sled deck on it that is turnbuckled down to the basically you're saying I'm screwed

I'm sorry for the bad news but honestly it's a sealed unit unless you can stick a screwdriver in the sides which will damage the body by prying against it to release the locks.. The cover has about 12 Torx screws which you can access everything in the tailgate...
