Is it not like any other pickup tailgate? Drop tailgate to about 45° then lift the leftside up/out... Cables should be pretty clear... Hope this helps....

Yup, AH2R is correct. The cables have retention tabS that flex so they can be removed off the studs without tools.

I did not see any retention tabs on my gate. The outside cover of the tailgate had to be removed so I could get a wrench on the inside cable nuts to disconnect the cables to the gate. Then tip out until the gate would come out the slotted housing on the driver side of the vehicle. Thanks for the input, I will double check on that retention tab to see if I missed something.  Thanks for the input.

Here are the cables and a couple of the hinge pivots.... Hope this helps... Can't think you'd need to pull the tailgate apart to remove it....
