Chevy S10 Window Reinstallationby Daniel Valladares
Installing a new window on your Chevrolet S10 Blazer requires a fair amount of effort as you have to remove the interior door panel in order to access the old window. As the windows are an important safety component of your S10 Blazer, it is vital that you replace a broken window as quickly as possible. The installation procedure should take you close to an hour to complete.
Turn the Blazer's engine off and lower the window as far as it will go.
Remove the Blazer's window handle by prying it out with a flat-head screwdriver. Remove the door-lock knob in the same way.
Remove the single screw securing the armrest to the door and pull the armrest off.
Remove the four screws securing the lower part of the interior door panel. Remove the two screws securing the door-handle cover plate to the door and pull the plate off of the door.
Remove the four screws securing the upper portion of the door panel. Pull the interior door panel off and unplug its electrical connection.
Remove the window-securing assembly by unfastening its bolt and remove its two securing screws.
Remove the roller from the window and pull the window up and out of the S10's door.
Install the replacement window by lowering into the door frame and pushing the window forward until it slides onto the lower roller notch.
Reattach the front roller and the window-securing assembly.
Reconnect the door trim's electrical connection and reinstall the interior door trim to the door. Reassemble the door trim.
