    I just installed a new power switch for the tailgate glass in my 1991 GMC Suburban, and had to remove the window rolling hardware to get to it.

    As I was removing the window rolling hardware, a coiled up spring appeared from out of nowhere, and I have no idea how to get everything back together.

    If someone has a diagram and instructions on how to get this back together, I would be most appreciative. Otherwise, I think I'll have to take it to a glass shop for help. :(

    you dont need the spring, but if you realllly need it, there is a bar that goes up and down and looks like a L in the middle of the tailgate at the bottom. It basicly hold the bar up and prevents you from opening the tailgate when the window is up. When the window goes down, it push's the bar down and allows the tailgate to be opened.
