Re: Blazer tailgate glass install??

Pretty simple stuff. Open the gate. Remove the access panel on the inside of the gate. Raise/lower regulator to make the bolts that hold the window to the regulator accessible. Remove the bolts that attach the run channel to the sash (2 per side). Then you can carefully slide the old glass out (it's curved slightly so don't yank straight out).

Reverse the procedure. Slide the new glass in, bolt it up. Run the regulator to the bottom of the travel. Reinstall the access panel. Close gate, roll up window.

Quick tip- if your K5 has a power regulator there is a switch inside the gate that will cut power to the motor once the gate is open. So you won't be able to move it with the gate open. So to move the regulator, unscrew the cable from the motor on the driver's side of the gate. It's a square drive cable like a speedometer cable. Take the free end of the cable you just pulled off and chuck the square cable into a cordless drill. Now you can use the drill to raise/lower the regulator to what ever position you need to get to. Just remember to re-attach the cable to the motor when you are done!

Also while you are there make sure you give the rollers and slides a good dose of lubricant and the gears of the regulator too. The window will move smoother and with less drag.

Precision has a video, pretty straightforward but helps to have a couple helpers holding the glass
