Question about 2004 Ford Explorer
I have a 2004 Explorer with 50,000 miles on it. Got home from the store last night....popped open the rear window and unloaded. When I grabbed the rear window and attempted to close it the hinges on top just broke!!! They appear to be plastic with a small metal pin....that's it! The window swung sideways and scratched the paint on the rear of the truck. Unreal, what a piece of JUNK!!! Now what do I do? I'm not even sure if I can drive it without the window falling out.
Same thing happened to me but I was told the recall for this only covered '02 and '03 models. I was lucky and didn't have the associated body damage, but I can tell you the cost of the hinges is about $70 for the pair - my mechanic installed for me and the total bill was under $140. That's assuming you can live with the body damage.

You need to call your local Ford Dealership and find out if this is covered. There was a saftey recall that they pay for, including the repair to the paint and the metal. The TSB # is 05-24-02. Good Luck.
