    2016 Explorer Liftgate Panel Removal

    Have a squeaky liftgate and trying to remove the panel to figure out why it squeaks. Don't want to mess anything up. Other than the two screws on the inside handle, is there anything else that I need to be aware of? Does it just pop off? Anything to be cautious of so I don't break anything?

    Crooked torsion bar bolt?

    :confused2: I noticed that one side of my truck is sitting higher than the other when I went to install front sway bar links. Do I have to re-seat the bracket that the torsion bolt goes through? I know it definitely shouldn’t be crooked.
