    I have the manual rear window handle on my '83 Jimmy, and I'm trying to find out how to tighten it up. Seems to be the cause of noise when going over bumps. Ther's a gap between the the handle piece that's used to move the glass and the handle base that mounts to the gate. I have found a nut inside that I tried to tighten but it's pretty tight already. Help

    I believe there is a wavy washer of some sort that supposed to take up the slop. I cut a small plastic washer to put in mine that helped some. A whole new assembly is just $40 fro LMC.
