Question about 1995 Chevrolet Blazer
My trunk won't open. I can hear the mechanism move when I press the release button, but the glass won't pop up. I was able to get somewhat acces to the gold latch, but I can't manually pry it open. Is there a trick to it?
I was able to get two wedges between the glass and the plastic trim. From that I used a scope to see inside and find the mechanism to release the window. Once I got the glass open, I removed the handle, and two screws from each side of the trim and removed the trim.
Once the trim was removed I had a small opening and could see the problem. The end of the latch has a small blue plastic (why plastic??) catch that broke.
Rather than taking the door apart and finding a replacement, I heated a screw driver and made a slot in the plastic. Next I used a heavy duty zip tie and connected the two pieces (plastic catch and metal part that opens the latch). I left some slack in the connection and all works great.
Not sure how long this will last, but for now I have the back opening. I will look at replacing the plastic piece, but not sure if a total new mechanism is needed.

Before you put the screwdriver to it try having someone pushing on the glass while you hit the switch. usually a sharp push while the shitch is applied will open the lid.
Ps. dont forget to rate my solution. Thanks
