Some of the rear hatches from mid-90's Chevy Blazers and GMC Jimmy's has bad hinges on the top that caused the hatch to creep upward over the years. You can identify this problem by looking at the top edge of the hatch where it meets the back roof line - if it's flush with the roof line then no problem and you can stop reading right here, but if it's raised above the roof line the hinges are seperating and the hatch is literally "creeping" upward. What happens is that as the hatch creeps upward in the closed position it places pressure on the locking mechanism at the bottom until it finally jams. To open it you need three people working together - the first person stands on the rear bumper with both hands on the top edge of the hatch pressing downward with their body weight, the second person needs to press the release button, and the third needs to pull on the lift handle of the hatch. Pressing down releases the upward pressure on the latch from the bad hinges, and pulling out on the handle along the bottom edge of the glass hatch will open the hatch when the release button is pressed.
Good luck - Jonathan
