Default 2004 Frontier thread

Does anybody REALLY know how to remove the entire tailgate latch assembly on a 2004 Frontier? I took off the two 6mm thread nuts (10mm socket) and the two rods, does the assembly then just pry off?
I have the 2004 factory service manual and it's zero help. The lock cylinder seems to be OK, it's just that convoluted linkage that seems to be the hold-up. And very dumb that the tailgate protective cannot be removed unless the tailgate is open, when that is the problem in the first place !

I don't want to have to pull on the two rods to open it every time. Thanks.
