Hey Becky==There probably is part of the linkage that has come loose. GoodluckJoe

answerThis problem applies to 95-98 Blazers as well as the GMC and OLDSMOBILE versions. On the newer blazers they have a secret hole in the back of the tailgate where you can insert a rod to release it.

The key to the solution is to get the window to unlatch first do that you can open the tailgate and then perform the repair inside the tailgate. This was not easy. I got very frustrated even after reading some of the other "answer" suggestions like the Allen key method. To unlatch the window you will have to climb inside behind the tailgate facing out. You need to make a tool using a bent piece of heavy wire 12" long (like a coat hanger - but preferably stiffer). Bend a 90 degree hook in the end about 1-1/4" long. Make another bend about 6" away from the first bend to make a "J" shape.

Hold the tool parallel to the glass and slide down - hook first - into the center of the plastic hump concealing the latch mechanism. Rotate the tool so that the hook faces the front of the vehicle (the 1-1/4" section should be horizontal at this point). Line the tool up about 1/2" to the passenger side of the hump's centerline. Push the whole tool straight down with about 2 pounds of pressure. This pushes on the release and the window will pop. After you get the window to pop you will see how the latch is made and it will seem easy. I made a drawing I can fax to those who need it. Fax your request to 718-857-8499 and I will fax back the sketch. In the future I will get drawing scanned, I will post a link.

After you get the tailgate down,You will need to remove the back interior panel of the tailgate, this has 3 screws, 1 in the top middle and 1 on each side, after they are out it is just held in by clips so remove slowly. With this removed you should be able to look through little access panels to see if something has come apart, some of the assemble you can reattach from this point for harder to reach areas you will need to remove the steel panel. This is easy it just has a lot of screws and a couple of clips you need to unclip. Just remember what screws and clips you unhooked so assemble will be easy as well.

if its anything like my blazer a 2000 6 cyl 4.3L vortec then its under the hood on the passenger side you'll see a plastic casing looking thing you have to cut the casing off take off the reserve tank and the computer thing above it and the blower motor is right under the casing use black adhesive to seal the casing back up because you reuse the casing and seal it up as neat as possible.

Assuming you have an automatic transmission the dipstick is located under the hood on the passenger side in back of the engine, close to the firewall.

Assuming this is a 4.3L engine, it is located under the hood, in back of the engine, on top, close to the distributor.

You have to get the whole back glass, the seal is attached to the glass and that is the way it comes.
