    to gain access to the 2 mounting nuts that hold the handle on you have to take off the inner access panel, bypass the window safety switch to roll up the window with the tailgate down. Should be able to get to them then.

    the window won't roll up when the tailgate is down, usually if you click the left tailgate latch closed with the tailgate down it will let the window roll up. be sure to support the glass as it rolls up.

    don't give up, in my 85'K5, the brushes can be replaced in the rear window motor. I went to an autoparts store looked at all the alternator brushes. I found what looked close. then used a benchgrinder, to correctly get the brush the right size. solder them in place. they still worked when it was sold 5 years later.
    was a long time ago but thought the inside tailgate had screwed on covers to gained access.
    I paid 85 cents, chevy dealer wanted 75$ for an assembly!/forums/images/icons/mad.gif
