To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
So far, so good. The only issue I had with these is that I had to drill out the hole in the liftgate slightly in order to get the bolt attached to the hinge through the hole in the liftgate. Attaching the second hinge, I thought to see if I could screw the bolt into the hole rather than drilling the hole out a little more, which also worked. I have no complaints so far as they work and perform like they should.
I bought these to fit my 1999 Ford Explorer Sport (two-door). The original hinges rattled loose after 20 years, and the bolts stripped when I tightened them. These replacements fit perfectly and installed without too much effort. My rear glass opens and closes again without any trouble.
These hinges fit my 2003 Explorer Sport XLT. Even though Amazon's part finder said these hinges wouldn't work. I looked at the picture and crossed my fingers and they fit perfectly. I just read the other comments and found that two other people said the same.
These hinges are much better than the use crap . I've bought 4 sets of Aluminum used original of fords that strip always crap .Bought them for my 2000 Ford Explorer 2 dr. .The extra money is worth it . Highly recommended !
This was as ordered. All gaskets come with each one. Worth the cost. Only problem I had was the new ones bolts where bigger and I had to drill out old holes to keep from messing up treads on new ones before I could install them.
The trickiest part of this...holding the glass still while replacing the hinges. Unfortunately we had to open the glass so that we could get everything to line up; felt like herding cats for a little while at that point. Looked just like the Ford's that had been on there for nearly 20 years.
What pleasant surprise that Amazon carries auto parts! And for our 1999 mercy. Granted it was for the window in the hatch. Had to make a little adjustment on the size of the hole, otherwise it is great. And no going store to store asking for old parts!
Perfect fit for my 2002 Ford Explorer Sport even though the description said that they wouldn't fit. Read someone else's review and purchased them and they fit perfectly. They also seem to be more heavy duty than the originals. Very happy with the purchase.
