This answer was rated:

2000 Chevy Blazer the rear hatch window won't release. The actuator operates from all switches but the window will not open. How can I get this window to release so I can make a repair.
Do you have a liftgate or a window that goes up and a tail gate that goes down?

Reply to carhelp4uhere's Post: yes the actuator is operating sound like its diconected or strip gear.

You are going to need to get into the tail gate to get to the root of your problem. You will have to do this while the gate is closed. There is no backup release unfortunatley. Here is how to get at it.

Object Number: 748  Size: SH

  • Remove the handle from the handle assembly.

    Remove the endgate trim panel.

  • Remove the endgate bellcrank rod from the endgate inside handle assembly.
  • Remove the screws that retain the endgate cover to the endgate.
  • Remove the endgate cover from the endgate.
  • This will allow you some access to the latch assembly to see what is actually going on.
  • I have seen these actuators actually break, due to the plastic arm breaking that releases the latch. I would look at that first.
  • Let me know if you have any further problems or questions.
