    GM seems to be using a longer cable now for the back glass.
    Part # 12542292
    This cable is much longer and needs to be routed differently.
    Route right to the bottom of the tailgate and under the bottom glass bump stop.
    Years ago I replaced all of the hardware in my tailgate (including the cable). My glass was still very slow. I pulled the truck out of hibernation this year and the cable had jammed.
    Short story… The new cable from GM is much longer, thus: softer curves in the cable.
    Now I have to be careful when lowering and raising the glass.
    It is now faster than the windows in the doors.
    Finally!!! Now I can die happy.

    Burbs don't even use a cable for their tailgate's, its direct.
