Purchased these to replace the original hinges on a 2000 Ford Explorer. Installation was quick and easy. These hinges seem to be of better quality than the OEM parts. The bolt stud which connects into the top portion of the hinge was the issue with the original part. This new hinge has a great adjustment on the this stud.
Fit perfectly on my Ford explorer Sport 2002! Just another part that no matter what, you will have to replace at some point. The glass is heavy and can be awkward and it will break if it's dropped so I devised a way to get them on. Remove ONE and replace it only tightening the glass side. Using blue painters tape, securing the glass as much as needed. Open hatch carefully and attach other side to body. Repeat for the other side. It is very recommended to replace your shocks witch are found on Amazon for a fraction of the price and they work amazing as well!
Didn’t realize these come in pairs so now I have an extra pair .... no worries. Seem to be better than the factory parts where the stud pulls out with the slightest torque.
When installing, I removed both support struts to avoid fighting the lift pressure, however the glass is heavy without support. Installation of the hinges is easy peasy at this point. Needed a couple new círclips to reinstall the struts.
I was able to install the hinges fairly easily with only on of the holes needing to be drilled out slightly. The new hinge has a little bit larger bolt to secure it to the door. Looks like the originals and secures my glass door on my older 1998 Explorer very well. Thank you for having this available. The old hinges gave way three days ago when I was working with the local youth and I was anxious to get it repaired before the glass door got broken.
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.
