not really. it is best done with two people. remove the inside paneling, roll the window down and open the tailgate. then use a phillips screwdriver and push down the side tabs so the tailgate thinks it closed and roll the window up, have the second person hold the glass. You now have access to change the key cylinder.
put the doorlocks on the side of your tailgate into the locked position, then you will be able to retract the window. Once that is done, grab a screwdriver and unlock those locks so you can close the tailgate.
before you go and buy anything,it may be a good idea to open the rear door panel and see if the window just came of the rail guides on the regulator,there are two white small wheels on the regulator that ride on a guide rail attached to the window this rail is attached to the window by two rivets or bolts,just take the cover panel of and see what is the matter in there. here ara steps to get there.
Remove the assist strap hole cover, bolt and assist strap.
Using a screwdriver, remove the back door trim cover.
Tape the screwdriver tip before use to avoid damaging the trim pieces.
Remove the plate and disconnect the electrical connector.
No there is no bypass. The Motor in my tailgate crapped out on me last year partly to do with a rusted out tailgate that let water in! I replaced my tailgate, but in my research found that the only way to get the window down was to remove the inside panels on the tailgate, un screw the cover plate, and then unbolt the motor to allow the window to drop enough to open the tailgate. Once the tailgate is down it will be easier to see the internals and remove the motor. Hope this helps you
toyota's are prone to wiring rot. a Local toyota dealer has told me (with the same problem) to chop the middle of the pannel off for the tailgate to get into the wiring. the connectors may have rotted off. if you find a solution, let me know.
Sounds like something just fell apart inside. Probably just a roller or something. If you can't do it yourself, it shouldn't cost too much. Just make sure you stand there and watch, so you don't get ripped off. In fact, if you take the cover off the inside of the tailgate, maybe you can fix it yourself.
if its the back tailgate window you remove the cover that hides everything inside the door and use some tape to stick the window shut while removing the window mechanisim and then undo the motor its only held on with a few screew's and replace and put it back togeather and should be all good
There is a saftey built into the tailgate that will interupt the ground to the switch in the center console with the tailgate open. This keeps the operator from trying to roll the window up with the tailgate open. If you have no ground to the rear window switch it is most likely the tailgate safety switch. If it is like my '88 it is built into the drvers side tailgate latch.
