Mine was missing the knob for opening it, I bought a new one from and replaced it, there are two to chose from, I bought the cheap one and it was a complete unit with keys. You have to remove the inner panel from the tail gate to get access to the lock then remove the clip holding it in and replace it with the new one.

How can you open a 1992 Blazer rear tailgate window lock?

1992 chev blazer reartail gate window lock is broken ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- On the 89, (83-94 S10/S15 Blazer) you turn the latch with key one direction and it opens the window. Then once the window is open, you can turn it the other direction and it opens the tailgate. On mine, the part with the "ears" started slipping. The window would still open easily with just the key. However, I was barely able to get the tailgate open using just the key. Replacement parts are available on the internet and E-Bay. You can remove the key part by removing the inside panel of the tailgate (must be open). Then 4 - 10mm bolts to hold on a cover. You may need to remove the rest of the latch mechanism (or at least push it out of the way). A slide-type clip holds the latch in place. Pry and slide the clip to the right (passenger side). The latch should come out and can be replaced. I'm trying a "repair" now. More notes later since I don't feel like trying to re-key a generic.
