So I was taking off my rear plate to attach my sticker, one of the bolts sheared off. Nice. I thought the easiest way to get the bolt out is from the inside, removing the tail gate panel. Does anyone have instructions on how to remove the tail gate panel ?

Sante Fe 2014 2.0T AWD Limted,

Thanks!

Very sure the hole and threads don't go all the way through the tailgate. You can try one of those screw removal bits and getting some wd or pb blaster in the hole.

Last resort, drill it out and tap some new threads.

OK, apologies for lack of pictures. The bolt sheared off flat to the car, so no chance of getting hold of it with pliers or grips. I managed to get hold of a bolt extraction tool. I drilled the remaining bolt and used he extraction tool, now the remainder of the bolt just turns, but does not unscrew. Not sure where so go from here. I think I may have to remove the panel on the inside tail gate but I have no idea where to start on that. Any advice much appreciated.

Just drill a small hole and get an Easy Out Drill Bit. I will bring the screw right out.. 0:)
