Default 91 K5 Hard Top Removal

I have got a 91 K5 Blazer Silverado with a removable top. I need to know how to remove the top without damaging anything. How do disconnect the seatbelts and wiring? And if you got any tips to make it easier to take off let me know. I've heard the top weighs about 300 lbs. Thanks Tim

It's pretty easy to do...We did it to ours. Open the cover to the seatbelts there are 2 bolts that have to be removed. There's also a plate behind the drivers side seat. Open that and there is a plug in there for the light. Then all that is left is the bolts on the top itself. It is a safety torx They sell the bit at auto zone. It is a size 40. We had to buy the bit because a regular torx will not do it. The bolts have a solid center to them. So get a bit that has the center taken out of it to accomidate the solid center of the bolt. Other than that have someone there to help you gently lift the top off and back. We slid it down to the tailgate and carried it off from there.

yeah two people could. My husband and neighbor lifted it off by themselves. It looks like it's really heavy but when they lifted it they said it wasn't too bad.
