    rear window doesn\'t go up level

    I recently purchased an '85 K5 Jimmy with a manual crank for the rear window, and the window rolls up fine until its a few inches from the top, and then the right side keeps going but the left side wont go up any more. I haven't taken the tailgate apart yet but I'd like to know what I can expect when I do, and how much it might cost for parts.

    Welcome to the best 4X4 site on the web
    BTW you are the 4,000 registered user of this site...Congrats. Now about the tailgate...when you pull the cover there should be an arm going to each side of the window, make sure both bolts are in each side. easiest way to see without being a contorsionist(sp?) is to lower the tailgate then roll the window up.
    As for parts you can easly find those on here too, just search the for sale forum.

    pull the cover off with the tailgate down. roll the window up 1/2 way. check the rollors and channels. channels rust, the rollors break apart. maybe your lucky and it only needs grease. The rollors and channels are still available at gm parts. not much $ either. My local chevy dealer stocks them.

    your right. I don't understand the jeep thing!
