Hi, my tailgate lock bezel fell out and I'm not surprised, the clips were all broken off. I bought a new one from Toyota but I'm struggling to get it sitting flush against the tailgate... is there a secret knack to clicking it in place?

Also, I have noticed that underneath the tailgate carpet, the cardboard backing is old and falling apart so doesn't grip the tailgate clips very well. Can you get new backing from anywhere?

Thanks

Ben

In case anyone's interested, dry the backing off, reinforce sections with gorilla tape, bought new clips from Toyota and all is well. Carpet and backing section is 800 quid from Toyota... no thanks!

Also there IS a trick with the lock bezel. I had to unbolt the lock from the inside of the tailgate and lift it up then the bezel clipped in nicely from the other side.
