1996 Mitsubishi Montero tail gate off hinges

For the past year I have had to lift the tail gate to get it to shut fully. Last night it totally came off teh hinges. Even if I can get the gate hinges realigned, I don't see what will keep it in place. Any knowledge on this problem?

    It seems that the pins in the hinges are sheared off. I don't know if I can tap them out and replaced them?

I have a 2000 Chevy Blazer and I can get the Rear Hatch to open but the tailgate won't come down?


Hi, check your lift supports or the hinges. If they're dented or bent, they might let the hatch open but not come back down.

Here's a link with a picture of the locations of the lift support and hinges. I hope this helps.

How to re-attach the headlight bulb retaining clip


1. make sure the bulb is fully seated.

2. the clip is hinged--like a gate-- at one end. Swing the "gate" shut. Its center will contact (jam on) the back of the bulb. Push in on the :"gate" and then downward on the end that is not the hinge.

Mitsubishi Endeavor 2004. 1. the tail gate and the tail gate glass do not open 2. the AC drains into the driver flooring instead of draining outside to the ground. Why? And where is the output drain...


The door and the glass just needs some penetrating lubricant( WD 40 ), just a few squirt will do on hinges and locks!
The drainage hose would be under the passenger side( RiGHT FRONT SiDE) glove box, look down there, u will see a black hose from the center that houses ur A/C & heater housing! Lift up ur floor covering to see it clearly. check and clean the hose it might already been clogged by moss and dirt or dislocated thru the drain holes on the flooring! Hope that helps out! Taah!

Where is the hose for the rear window washer on my 2002 Chev Blazer?


The hose runs along the frame and up through the tail gate on the two piece tail gate, on the single lift gate the hose runs from the top where the hinge's is located that hold the lift gate. Common for the host to crack there, causing it to leak before it goes out to the wipers. Good luck and hope this helps.

1996 Isuzu Rodeo stuck tail gate


Remove the interior trim panel which will not be easy since the gate is up ---- you can then access the lock mechanism and will probably find a bent linkage rod or a broken plastic retainer clip.
