Cracked Liftgate Hinge
« on: October 01, 2018, 10:05:43 PM »
In need of help and advise. I noticed a crack in the drivers liftgate hinge. Can this be repaired? I have removed the liftgate struts to relieve pressure on the hinge and
avoiding opening the liftgate. So far the crack had not spread. I have not been able to locate any hinge to replace it. Cannot find a used one. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You could post a wanted ad in the classifieds section. Someone might have one to sell. Also mabe check to see that it is still tight to the roof.

I have the exact same thing, driver side hinge. Create a saved search for the hinge on eBay. They do pop up from time to time. I only waited a couple weeks before a pair appeared in my inbox.
I have no idea why I wanted a thirty year old car so bad, but it is finally mine.
