    Default lift gate/tailgate glass?

    what is the material that hold the lift gate glass to the hinges?
    one of my hinges broke loose, how do i go about fixing it?
    some type of epoxy, JB weld, etc?

    thanks...

    If I remember correctly, they use some sort of high-strength epoxy to glue windshields down with. I'm not sure if it's special epoxy or not, but I'm willing to bet it is. The surfaces also will need to be prepped very well. Hope this helps some until someone with more knowledge can chime in.
