Hi, I'm Don from 1A Auto. I hope this how-to video helps you out, and the next time you need a part for your vehicle, think of 1AAuto.com. Thanks.

In this video, we're going to show you how to replace the rear glass support pistons on this 2002 Chevy Suburban. We show you on the passenger side, but the driver side is the same procedure. The items you will need for this is new rear glass support pistons from 1AAuto.com and a flat blade screwdriver.

At the top and bottom of the piston, you'll see these clips. You just have to pry out on them while pulling it from the stud. Make sure you have someone or something safely securing the tailgate glass. Just pry out the clip and pull the piston from the stud. Do the same thing up here.

On the bottom is the old piston; above it is the new one from 1A Auto. You can see they're identical, and they'll fit exactly the same. Take your new piston and just push both ends on to those studs and you're all set.
