There should be a mark indicating a left side and right side for the cable. The top connection will have a clip to remove the cable. It just slides on the cable post inside the tailgate door housing. The bottom connection requires the post to be removed. This is a torx tips screw, but I was successful with pliers. Remove the screw and make sure the cable connection notch is pointing up when you replace the screw.
