Corrosion of flipper glass hinges

My hinges have been nonfunctional for months now while I've tried to track down replacements. The glass has just been duct taped on and I'm getting sick of it being that way. Chrysler says they don't have that specific part and I'd have to order the whole window. I asked the safelite guy when he replaced my windshield and he said that's not true... I've had no luck with the Internet or salvage yards in my area. Does anyone have any insight on this for me? Anyone else have this problem and fix it?

I'm sorry, I am using my iPhone app so don't know how to copy a link to another post, but this has been discussed in a previous thread. Do a quick scroll through the KK postings and you should find it.

I do t recall the suggestions, but hopefully you can find an it will help you.

I would tend to believe that while the glass is available without the hinges, the hinges may not be available without the glass from the dealer. The KK is too new to be in salvage yards so you wont be able to go that route. You'll probably have to pony up for the whole thing.

Never say never, fortunately there are plenty of people who cannot drive so I am sure there are plenty of KK's that have been totaled out in collisions.

Very true. I had a guy in a brand new Audi Q something creep up to my bumper while I was pumping gas not too long ago. We touched and he just kept trying to creep forward. Upon confrontation he blamed it on his car and said he "didn't hear the warning system beep". People. Am I right?

Anyways, I've got a couple more places to call today. Otherwise I'll have to jimmy something up for it...or just rock the black duct tape indefinitely. Thanks for the help.

Just had this happen yesterday. The hinges are available seperate from the glass. The problem? Back-ordered North America wide until October...maybe. There are no aftermarket hinges that I can find. I feel your pain, I'm currently in the black gorilla tape myself and I f*ing hate it. Frustrating as hell.

Part No. is 57010060-AB. Good luck.
