Rear electric window question?

Discussion in '1973-1991 K5 Blazer | Truck | Suburban' started by **DONOTDELETE**, Jun 2, 2002.

    I took my inner tailgate panel off the other day (the tail gate was down)and noticed that the window "does not" catch while I rolled the window to the up position. But, when I have the tail gate closed and try to roll the window up, it catches about 3/4 of the way up? I was trying to locate the part that it catches on to fix it, but I don't know what to look for now? Anybody else have the same problem?

    Thanks for the help!

    What do you mean catch? I do not understand what you are saying?
     
  2. When I say catch, I am saying that the window stops and will not go up any further, unless I push in on the top of the window while rolling it up. I was hoping someone else has had the same window symptoms.

    Thanks!

    Your issue sounds EXACTLY like the problem i had.
    If your tail gate is at all compressed (dented) in the inside middle somewhere, there is a very good chance that the window ledge (Bottom of the window) is catching on the motor. When your window is going up push on it gently (from the outside) and it will go up the rest of the way. To fix it requires pulling out the dented section with a crow bar or a dent puller.

    I'd almost put money on that one!! /forums/images/icons/smile.gif
