The rear door or the tailgate door?
Either way, the interior trim panel has to be removed to gain access.

How do you remove the rear panel , I need to fix the liftgate (hatch)

If the lift gate will not come open, you'll have to crawl through from the inside to get to it. Screws will need to be removed, and then a trim tool is used to separate the trim via the push pins that secure them.
