    thought that get some attencion. Hard to tell via looking but I think the stupidsh..head owner of my blazer before me broke a key off in the rear window key cylinder. I know I can't put my key in it all the way like its supposed to. As far as seeing anything it looks like small tip of key could be in there but nothing definate. Anyway, have tried a small parts pick, no luck.

    Looks like you have to go thru backside of tailgate to get at lock cylinder. Anyone care for tip offering on this. Tks in advance.

    You can roll the window up with the 'gate down by pushing down on the drivers side latch on tailgate until it clicks twice, then the tailgate thinks it's closed and you can roll the window out. The glass needs to be supported though, I use some trashcans with a blanket over them.

    Blazerguy,
    Tks reply. You've lost me. Real easy to do.
    I can use the switch on dash to go up/down no problemo. It just seems like there's remnants of a key in the lock and I can't put my key in the rear window key switch. I thought it would be nice to be able to do that thinking you dont have to start up the truck to get window down. Wondered if I have to get cylinder out to remove broken key.
    Tks again,
    tom

    tailgate clicky

    Heres a bit I did on the tailgate. Not sure if you can disassemble the lock cylinder enough to actually get a piece of key out of it, kind of doubt it, but since you'd have to pull it anyway, might as well try, right?
