    I have a tailgate I want out of an 88' Blazer. The truck has no motor, battery....etc... What is the best and easiest way to roll down the electric window? /forums/images/graemlins/ears.gif

    you can disconnect the part that goes to motor to the regulator and do it by hand. you may need a screw driver but i don't remember, i have done it.

    You could always hook up a 9v bat to the input line on the tailgate motor. Will go slow, but work.

    Disconnect the motor and clamp on a set of vice grips to the regulator and turn away. That is what I am doing currently. Ghetto? Yes! But it works for now.

    Yep that's the easiest way if it does have the blue cord connected to the gears if not get in the truck, pull the cover of the tailgate, get a flashlight and on the left side about the middle of the tailgate will be some gears, put a screwdriver up in there and start turning, takes a while to find the right spot cuz it's behind a metal piece.. there's a dude on ebay sellin a new motor for $60 i'm buyin some tailgate straps from him and a new wire that attaches to the motor, pm me if you want his e-mail address..

    dave 90 has got it. use a cordless drill and just connect it where the cable connected to the motor. the window will probably roll up and down smoother than it ever did with the motor.
