Appears that the very top of the LH side is binding under the glass when I try to lift. When I raise up on the glass, the trim wants to buckle down on the LH side but there is no obstruction....:confused: The liftgate opens fine but the glass is catching.....not even enough to fit my hand when it pops.

Anyone ever run into this?

Its the support lift shocks binding , it happend to me when i picked up mine for mthe used car dealer , they opened the hatch and took the pistons off and installed new ones they are about 15 bucks or so at parts store , you need a pick or a small flat blade screwdriver to lift the clip and pull it off the ball mount , install is easy have somone hold the glass in the up position and you just push the supports onto the ball mounts and your good to go
