Hi everyone, I have managed to get hold of a decent second hand tailgate for my mate's 1998 (MK7?) Escort estate. I need a bit of help with the fitting of it, though. What's the best way to go about it? Also, is it always a must that you use de-ionized water when flushing a radiator and replacing the anti-freeze? Thanks : )

The wiring can be a pain in the tail gate, but when you unbolt it and lift it away, clean the boot mounts as a lot of the electrics in the boot are earthed out through the boot hinges

Me and my mate tried to fit the tailgate, but made a bit of a hash of it. You see, the tailgate I bought had the wiring cut, so me and my friend were going to pull the wiring out of the old tailgate, not realising that it went right round the whole tailgate and not just into the brake light as it looked! Not we are going to have to find a way of running the old wiring back through the tailgate. What's the easiest way of unclipping the rubber grommet that houses the wiring at the top of the tailgate? Thanks : )
