How do you remove the interior trim from the rear hatch on a 2002 Trailblazer LS. I need to fix my rear glass so it will open. When I push in the button nothing happens. If I smack the button with the palm of my hand it will release the latch and the window will open. Any help will be appreciated.
Thanks
:thx

The bottom and top pieces just pull straight off. There are spring clips on the back side that press into holes in the sheet metal. The bottom piece overlaps the top piece so remove the bottom one first. First you need to remove the black push pin to the left of the glass lock mechanism.

Do you have to remove the black plastic lift handle. I removed the push pin and the left side of the trim seems to want to come off but the right side resists.

No --- that handle can stay.
Sometimes those push-clips are pretty tough and you might break a couple.
Be careful and don't do this in a very cold atmosphere.
Plastic gets very brittle when it's extra cold.
I use a high power hair drier from a 2nd hand store to help.

Just MY observation here: I think once you get a 'zip' started when some of the clips are releasing, don't hesitate and keep on going to get them all out in one piece.

Just sayin'..........
