Question about Chevrolet Blazer
No hole behind the carpet. You need to get to where the striker on the glass meets the latch (at the top, center of the tailgate). The latch release actuator has a broken lever that pushes against the latch to release it. Common problem. There is a screw holding the trim panel near the latch area. You are gonna have to force it loose. You need to pull back the panel at the latch area so you can get a tool (or a finger) down inside next to the latch and manually release it. There is a pivot on the latch you need to push down to release the latch. Once opened, remove the trim panel. You will then see a big silver panel covering the inside of the tailgate panel. You will see the actuator that needs replacing (it's held on with rivets). Drill out the rivets and install bolts if you don't have a rivet tool.

SOURCE: chevy blazer 95 with stuck trunk
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.

you have to get in behind tailgate interior trim and pull handle lever as this has come off from the actuator,once tailgate is opened remove panel and relocate actuator bar and you might want to cable tie bar in place for the future

Hi: the hatch release is not a motor it is a solenoid, you should hear just a click. If wipers and door locks not working check under the hood in the power distribution box for the 3 Amp fuse and replace. To manually open the hatch get in the back of the unit, in the center of the door below the window where the carpet starts below the plastic run your finger across the carpet, you will find an indentation where you insert a pointed object through the carpet. This allows you to release the latch for the window or hatch. Please rate suggestion....JD
