I didn't take detailed step-by-step photos, but see the attached. Back then I thought the problem was the lock actuator shown in the picture, but I didn't find anything wrong with it.
To remove the back panel open the hatch and remove the four screws/tacks on the lower part of the hatch where it has the latch/lock mechanism. (i.e. the side that sits on the bumper)
The upper portion of the panel doesn't have any screws and so it pops right out with a little pull force. I think there may be two other screws elsewhere, but I can't remember. It's pretty easy to find though.
Once the panel is released from the hatch disconnect the inside light cables and you'll have access to all the lock/actuator/cable assembly.
I hope this helps. Let me know how it goes and whether you find anything that is repairable.
