You might want to check if a recall was issued for the lift gate hinges. At one time a year or two were recalled for faulty parts. If you bought used parts you may have bought defective ones.

How to replace gas lift for back gate


depends on what model you are asking about . some of the rear lifte gate struts are bolted on . just remove the bolts while supporting the real glass or lift gate .And some struts use a little push clip at each end of the strut . these you can use a pick or a small flat blade screw driver to pop out of place . the new struts should have them already installed on them . so they just snap back on . just remeber to support the gate while changing the struts

How do I adjust doors for 2002 ford explorer sport


You can loosen the bolts that hold the hinge to the door and to the body and make some adjustment. I would suspect that you'll need to replace the hinges, most likely part of the hinges may have bent. Also check for any damage to the door where the hinges attach.

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.

2005 grand cherokee hood strut won't hold hood up.Brand new . Only has one strut.


Sounds like the new strut is either upside down or defective. When you purchase these make sure you get a hood support not a lift gate. The lift gate ones are for a much lighter rear hatch and will not support a hood.

I have a 2007 yukon and the lift gate goes up about half way and returns to the closed position. What is going on?


try removing your shocks/struts for the lift gate. once removed, check to see if they fully extend in and out of the barrel. You may have bent shocks/struts. Also, check to see there is nothing preventing the lift-gate from opening such as a bolt or acorns between the spoiler and the roof...

Struct replacement. Do I need to use a spring compressor?


On some models there are true struts. If you cannot access the shock absorber (the cylinder piece in the center of the spring) from the top, then that is truely a strut. In that case the answer is yes, you will need to compress the springs because these are large spring steel pieces that physically is uncompressable by hand. If you do not compress these springs you run the risk of serious injury and possibly death. I always recommend using a "rent-a-tool" program from your local auto parts house. Hope this helps, good luck!

Back door of explorer wont open, only the window does


First you need to somehow get the inside trim off of the rear lift gate. This can be tricky with the lift gate not opening, but it can be done. Be careful not to damage your trim. Inside you should be able to see the back side of the handle, wiggle the handle and see what connecting rod is not moving, there should be a little plastic piece broken. replace that and you should be fine.
