I try to do wright ups on the issues that i find with my vehicles. read the whole post before going step by step. The cable system that slides the back window open lost the bb that is soldered on to the end of the cable. After this happened it was pretty much junk. To change out the cable system, you will need a 10mm socket for the bolt that holds down the motor, a set of picks, soft wedges, and the correct socket used to remove the back passengers seat. I got a new cable actuator from amazon, made by acdelco, part number(26980205). I is 86 dollars. Remove your back passenger seat, remove the covers and insulation that cover the actuator. The covers are held on with metal clips. to get the clips to release, use a pick shaped like a hook to press in on the metal tabs on the bottom of the clips, then a straight pick to release the tabs on the top clip. Use a plastic or wooden wedge to keep pressure on the covers so when the clips are released, they will pull out of the slot they rest in. To remove the long cover, bring the back driver side seat base to a 45 ° angle to make the most clearance between the head rest and the back window. You will have to fight around the seat belt to get it removed completely.start by removing the window stops with the pick set, i used the 45° and the straight pick to push in the bottom of the stop to release the stop from the track. I removed the covers for the pulleys on each end of the track then twisted and pulled the cable shieve from the window track ends. I pulled the cables out of the clips that secured them to the track and started to remove the bb with a pick and just pulled the other up and out. remove the 10 mm bolt holding the motor and the actuator in place (My particular model, there are different designs) and remove the old actuator. to install the new actuator, put the bbs in the slots on the sliding glass, pull the cable sheaths tight to push in and twist. It will be very tight and seem short. install the pulley covers then the stops. run your cables back in to the clips that held them assemble the actuator making the alignment by sliding the glass. put your motor/actuator in position and bolt it down. put your insulation and covers on, press all the clips in on the covers. install the back seat, and its fixed. If i missed anything put it in the comments to let others know.
