Fiberglass panel cracked!

Good morning: I am a new member and have a problem!

My Explorer is a 2002 XLT. The fiberglass panel underneith the tailgate window on the lift gate has developed a full top to bottom crack.

How do I remove that panel--it seems to be attached at each side to the window frame?

Can I find that panel at a salvage yard or do I have to order it from Ford?

Would I have to replace the entire tailgate to solve the problem?

Could a body shop "fix"the fiberglass crack?

Thanks for any help!

i used a razor knife from Dollar tree to removed mine. i bought another panel from a wrecked Explorer.
