Last night I had the liftgate latch cut off-it was broken bad. After finally getting the latch open for the first time and removing the plastic molding I discovered two plastic trim clips but they weren't "holding" anything. I suspect there was some insulation in there of some sort....anyone have insight on this. Any help is greatly appreciated. And I now have to purchase a new locking mechanism solenoid and handle/latch.

I had the interior panel off my hatch fairly recently to lube all the mechanisms in there... I don't recall any insulation material in mine either.

BII hatch is fiberglass (Explorer is steel).

Pics are always helpful when looking at a particular part. I had a extra handle and assembly somewhere, I just have to remember where lol.
