Lift gate glass

I need to remove the glass in the rear lift gate in order to do some rust repair. I would like to know how to do this.
Also I have to remove the rear handle and lock assembly.
Any help would be appreciated.

We ended up using a wire attached to 2 wooden handles passing through the gasket material between the glass and the metal frame and sawing the gasket. Quite a slow job but it worked. As far as the handle goes it'll probably be a case of breaking the plastic hex bolt that holds the assembly and replacing it or maybe the whole thing.

Need to replace the liftgate switch, where can I get instructions to do that?


How do you know it need's a switch ?
Rear Hatch/Gate Description and Operation
The lift gate can be opened by operating the switch on the instrument panel. Battery voltage is supplied to the lift gate actuator through the body control module (BCM). The BCM will pulse the lift gate actuator when a release input is received through the key fob, or the instrument panel switch. Did you test voltages ? Check for BCM DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes ?
Circuit/System Description
The lift gate switch is an input to the body control module (BCM). The BCM supplies battery voltage to the signal circuit and when the lift gate switch is activated the signal circuit voltage goes low. The BCM controls the lift gate release actuator assembly through the LIFTGATE relay. When the lift gate switch signal is activated, the BCM enables the LIFTGATE relay by applying battery voltage to the lift gate relay circuit and the relay is energized when the BCM grounds the LIFTGATE relay control circuit. When the relay is energized battery voltage is supplied to the lift gate release actuator assembly through the lift gate release actuator control circuit.

2007 Yukon Denali XL lift glass is opening when I use the fob to open the rear hatch. This causes me to be unable to then close the rear hatch via the fob


This sounds like you have a grounding problem with your hatch circuits. This type of malfunction usually occurs when two systems (the hatch lift and the Lift glass release) are supposed to be sharing the same ground, but one of the systems has a bad connector or a broken wire. It then "activates" the other system by grounding THROUGH the system that it is supposed to be sharing ground with.

What I would do in your case is to take a HARD look at the wires that are in the conduit that runs between the lift gate and the body. These wires flex every time the lift gate is opened and closed, and are prone to breakage.

The way you describe it, it sounds like the lift gate motor is losing contact at about 1/3 to 1/2 of the way up, and that is when it grabs ground through the glass release solenoid.

How to replace gas lift for back gate


depends on what model you are asking about . some of the rear lifte gate struts are bolted on . just remove the bolts while supporting the real glass or lift gate .And some struts use a little push clip at each end of the strut . these you can use a pick or a small flat blade screw driver to pop out of place . the new struts should have them already installed on them . so they just snap back on . just remeber to support the gate while changing the struts

look closely/carefully for recessed screws. Most are usually pop on/ pop off types. Pull/ pry gently.
