    there are 2 bolts that bolt to the top from the bottom, you have to take of the side panels to get to them, once you take them off DONT put them back on.
    Then just take out all the bolts and un plug the wire connector, then the top will just pop right off.

    did all blazers have those? I have a 90 and they have those, did they not want people taking them off or something. :confused:
