Question about 2003 Lincoln Navigator
Is it physically broken? For the board there is really little that you can do with it. You can inspect the brackets and the mounts to which the board is attached to and check for loose connection or broken ones. I would discourage to attach broken pieces together with industrial glue as they are prone to accidents. You may have to replace parts or replace the entire set.
