I just bought a 2003 avalanche and the rear window will not go up. I believe its regulator arm is bowing and I have to change it. Does anyone have any tips that will make it easier?

Welcome to the club!

Take your time removing door panel.
Do not lose the hardware.
When glass is up when you remove regulator use painters tape to hold it up

As already said, keep track of all hardware and take you’re time. It is a relatively easy job and you will gain insight on how these things work. Use painters tape to hold the window up until you have the new regulator in. I just replaced the passenger front and it wasn’t to bad. The door panel only has 2 screws, and slides up to take off, the lock pops out, back first, there should be a screw in the armrest near the center towards the bottom and at the bottom of the door panel towards the front. Have fun

A suction cup dent puller works great to hold the glass up too...I just happened to have one when I did mine.(y)

My passenger rear window will not not go up from the local switch, but will from the master on the driver's arm console. It has an open diode in the local control module. I've know this for 6 years and have never bothered to fix it; as long as it still works from my seat I may never.

And welcome to the club!

Mine goes down by itself while you're driving and then won't go back up at either switch. I finally unplugged it so it can't do it again after I used two pins with a battery charger to run it back up, ha.
