TMOTION, no I rigged it (I glued a pc of plastic on the inside of the button) so that when I push the rear window button from the outside it made contact with the release to pop the window. Then I reach in and pull up on the lever to release door. The alarm still functions so if I don't disarm, it sounds the alarm once you open it. If the tahoe was here now I'd take a picture to show you.
Not the best fix, but we rarely use the back so it works for now.
I did find a used part for $75 at a recycling auto parts place, but they were all different from the one I had in my SUV. Later I found out that I could of used that one as well.
In fact you can use just about any rear gm suv between 2000-2006 p/n 15808595. The cheapest new one was $169.57 + s/h, dealership wanted $286.04 this was 6 months.
Like I said my fix has worked for now. Good luck hope this helps.
