I assume your motor is out? These old suburbans will get to where the switch that wont let you roll them down when they are open sometimes is the problem, also the switch, and the switch you use with the key in the tailgate itself, also fuse, The motors also have an overload protecter that is not making contact from corrosion. I have many times been able to beat on the inside door panel while holding the switch and made them start working again, But back to you question, remove interior covering, usually screws and plastic clips, then locate the motor, look and see if you can detach the regulator from the glass. If you can unbolt them. I have had this problem many years ago, but I can't remember exacty how the regulator in in the tailgate, it may be riveted, or it may be bolted. I am assuming you have made sure with test light or vom the motor is getting power, IF it is try applying power to it and tapping it with a wrench or something. It might make it start working. I offer free advice for everyone and will help anyway I can so if this info is helpful in any way, my compensation is my rating.

1, Disconnect the able from negative terminal of the battery.
2. Pry the courtesy light from the door trim and disconnect the wire connector..
3. Remove all door trim panel retaining screws and door pull armrest assemblies.
4. Remove the door switch panel and the control switch panel and the control switch assembly.
5. On models with memory seats/mirrors, use small-flat bladed pry tool to remove and disconnect the wire.
6. Grasp the trim panel lift up and pull out to detach it from the door. Disconnect the inner door handle lock rod from the handle. Unplug any electrical connectors remaining and remove the door panel.
7. To install, connect the wire harness connectors and place the panel in position in the door. Press the trim panel down into place until the hooks are seated.
8. Install the armrest/door pulls, the courtesy light and the window switch'
9. Reconnect the battery
Also. You will need star pattern drivers to remove the window and motor from your door. If you have all the equipment it should only take you 1 hour.

I had the same problem. I use a pin to push the switch from the bottom up. Obviously it is more pressure than using your fingertips.

You will likely have to remove the panel from the inside with the window up. Once you have the panel off I would try to have some one hold down on the switch while you tap the motor with a hammer. Of course make sure the latches are all the way closed as if the door is not closed all the way the window will not roll down as it has safety switches to keep this from happening.
If you still can not get it down then you will need to unbolt the regulator and let it down that way.
