Rear hatch hinges question
« on: May 15, 2016, 08:28:41 AM »
Question : Are the Eagle rear hatch hinges proprietary to the Eagle and it's variants like the Concord? I mean the design and metal type (easy to split pot metal). Or are there a heavy duty version of the hinges made of a better material?

I'm not aware of any other vehicles that  have hinges that would work on the Eagle.

  • If a hammer won't fix it, it's probably electrical

If you want to re-enforce your hinges, I fill up the cavities with JB weld to make then less likely to crack when you tighten them up.
