Should the window raise on its own after clicking the remote?
Mine unlatches, only pops out small amout.
Raises easy with a small lift.

Only wonder if gas shocks would make raise from begining.

Wagon rear window

I have 2 b-body wagons and both only just open and you have to lift the window. I put new struts on a few years ago on my 92 and you have to lift the window. You could work with your parts guy to find a strut that would lift the window.

Same, here - my rear window basically simply unlatches, and raises a tiny bit - opens with ease from there.

Be careful when trying to have a parts guy get you another window strut/shock that is not factory, you might get one the same length but it may take much more weight to function and applying that much more force to compensate may crack/break your glass and on a wagon that is a nightmare.

Pop

Yes, very good point.
I do not want broken glass.
Understand that required force to raise, could also crack glass.

Nope they just pop out a little. I have 5 wagons and they do the same thing.
If the window doesn't stay up on it's own then you need new shocks for it.

I thought about putting in a popper to get it to get to to fully actuate, but I couldn't really think of a good way to keep it clean.
