The hatch is pretty easy to remove. You'll have to pull down the headliner to get to the bolts for the hinges. You can just take the back headliner grommet off and the C pillar moldings and you'll be able to pull it down evough to get to them. You will also be able to get to the harness/es for the defroster/wiper and the sprayer hose. Also remove the shocks and you're all set.
