Re: GMC Jimmy rear window problems

Good place to ask this would be the GM solid front axle forum here on ORC/Chevy or over at http://www.ColoradoK5.com.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/cool.gif[/img]

Is the rear window power operated or manual?

Re: GMC Jimmy rear window problems

Does the motor make noise at all? I had an 86 and the motor ended up getting so corroded up it just wouldn't go all the way up. We had to take it all apart and hook an electric drill to the gears to get the window up. Then we left it up until I solid it to some guy. Luckily it was Febuary and like 15 degrees outside, so he wasn't intrested in opening the rear window.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]

Re: GMC Jimmy rear window problems

In my 84 K5 I had this problem once. Mine was the cable that, I think, goes from the motor to the key switch maybe? Not sure. Anyway, it was getting in a bind when you tried to raise the window. Sometimes when you rolled it down the glass would hit this cable and get in the bind. I think that it was also trying to push the glass out of the track...it's been around 10 years ago so I'm a little scketchy as to the actual details. I think I fixed it by opening the panel, with the gate down, and getting it unbound. Then I was able to roll up the window while my dad supported the glass, and I zip-tied the cable out of the way. I never had a problem with it again. Hopefull your will be that easy.
