(i have power windows)..the moter runs when i hit the switch but the window does not move. well me and a friend were cleaning it out a little in the back today..and found this little round unit wiht a litle gear on the back, and a black wire hose type thing.connected to it..wiht a big plug on the end of it. im guessing maybe this is a part form it that needs to be in there?...im about to go find out..

    The "black wire hose" sounds like the drive cable. But the gear sounds like perhaps something broke off of the motor itself. /forums/images/icons/frown.gif

    Re: possible answer to why rear window wont open..?

    I recently replaced the cable assembly on mine. It twisted into. The lift cable that runs from the motor to the drive assembly is essentially a speedometer cable. GM still has these in stock. If you go to a national parts chain and ask for one of these, you'll get the ? look. If I remember correctly, the end of the cable that connects to the motor is threaded. The end that connects to the window snaps into the regulator. If you are sitting in the rear of blazer facing out, it will be on the left side to the rear of the regulator. It is very difficult if not impossible to see. I used a mirror and a flashlight to put mine back together. I would send a pic, but I don't want to take all that apart again.

    Bryan, I just replaced the window motor on my suburban. What piece did you find? Also where was this piece laying? I am also assuming that your rear window set up is the same as mine. I had to purchase a new motor. I will caution you that this is a fairly expensive item.

    Listen to him Bryan!
    It sounds as if the rear window on a blazer is diffrent.

    That's not true. Many of us know about power windows and have had them apart several times to fix them and know them inside and out. It's just that it's hard to understand what you are trying to describe /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif ... the only reason I keep reading it is in hopes that someone will be able to figure out what your problem is /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif It's kind of like a soap opera /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif Maybe some pics???

    Just a friendly word of advice. You are asking for help so don't be a smart ass and criticize the people trying to help you. Your descriptions aren't much help. You will find that the everyone on this site is willing to help and are an endless source of info you won't find elsewhere. Suburban and Blazer tailgates are different. Go to your local GM dealer and get an exploded view of the parts and where they go.

    The black wire has a cable in it which will be square on the end (about 1/8 x 1/8 inch), that connects to the regulator transmission (a round looking piece about 3 or 4 inches in diameter). The transmission regulator bolts to the gears (window regulator). One thing you could do is disconnect the cable from the motor and connect it to the transmission regulator and spin it by hand using a small ratchet (you acting like the motor). The gears should move and should tell you if the trans reg is broken or not.

    That does seen a little unclear /forums/images/icons/blush.gif
    Yep, one end of the cable connected to the regulator the other end (which connects to the motor) is the free end that you get to play with /forums/images/icons/smile.gif
    Better?
