Had this happen about a week ago. Went to my Jeep dealer to find out that the hinges are back ordered North America wide until October, maybe. Frustrating as hell. I've had black Gorilla tape holding it together which is working well, but it looks terrible. My only gripe with Jeep are their s*it hinges. I had to replace the hinges on my '98 TJ twice. Just bought an '08 Liberty to have the same thing happen a week after I bought it. Shame on you Jeep. I've just finished an epoxy job, hopefully it will hold until the new hinges come in. The part No. is 57010060-AB if anybody can find them.

I have no suggestion for finding new hinges but maybe a preventative idea-our '06 Liberty has drain holes at the bottom of its rear window hinges-noticed these years ago every time I wash it,water and crud flows right thru,didn't think much of it but now our '08's rear hinges are corroding-thinking about drilling drain holes in the bottom of them

Does your '06 have corrosion issues at the hinges? My '98 TJ had the same problem i'm having now. The best my research can divulge is that the hinges are galvanized with zinc. A very bad oversight by Jeep. Zinc is very anti corrosive, but also very reactive. So mixing metals in the hinges, or between the hinge and the bolt will cause that grey/white corrosion that i've always had on my Jeep hinges.

the '06 hinges are not too bad- I noticed the corrosion on the '08 about the same time as the original posting on this thread(a crack in the side of the hinge and white stuff creeping out-looking almost like road salt-I know it's not but it's just a maddening reminder that you can't escape that crap up here) couple months ago started to spray a little oil in the hinges to displace water and maybe stop the corrosion 'til I come up with a permanent solution-don't know if drain holes are the answer but if you could see the way water and dirt flows thru the hinges on the '06 gettin' out the drill might seem like a good idea LOL

Fluid Film definately seems like it's worth a shot. I wonder how it penerates, as the corrosion seems to rot the hinges from the inside out.

I know this is an old thread, but it recently helped me with my hinge. Ours broke while on vacation, so I glued the hinge back on and taped around the window. I tried insurance, but they did not want to do anything since the glass was not broken. I called my local dealer with the part number listed above and they got for me next day at a cost of $40. There are different part numbers for the left and right, mine was the passanger side. Thanks for posting the part number, if I had not seen that I probably would have replaced the whole window since I was originally told the hinges only come with the window. Here are a couple pics.

Buckeye - I have the same problem. The hinge is rusted out and detached from the window ... but my problem is that the part attached to the window is rusted out too ... it actually looks exactly like your pictures but it seems like you were able to attach still? Please advise how you were able to attached? Thx.

There is a small hole in the glass for the bolt to go though. I did not take a picture of the window without the hinge attached, but I did take a picture of the new hinge before I installed it. The new hinge came with a new bolt to go through the window. My window was fine once I got the old bolt out.

Great. Thanks for the response. I ordered the hinges. I actually ordered for both sides as the driver side is almost about to give way too upon closer inspection. Jeez. They came in today but I'm out of town so I can't pick them up until later this week.

Buckeye - were you able to reinstall the new hinges yourself or should I bring it to a glass guy to do it? Thoughts?

I did it myself, only took a few minutes, it is only 2 bolts. Hardest part was getting the bolt out of the glass. I took my time and was careful so I didnt damage the glass.

Thanks for posting pictures. I'm sure a few more of us will have to do this eventually.

I had the same experience with my 2010 Liberty, thanks to all the posters here for their help. It saved me lots of wasted time and $$. Here are my findings:

--My hinge was the driver side. That part# is 57010061AB.
--The guy at the dealer said the same thing... that for the 2010 model only the entire window assembly was available. However, we did find the hinges listed for the 2008 Liberty.
They were not in the diagram, but as parts not pictured. I got the part the next after ordering, $43.
--Be careful if you use duct tape to hold the glass in place temporarily... I lost a little paint when I removed the tape. Luckily, it was on the part under the hinge.
--That Torx screw was very difficult to remove. I had better luck putting the torx bit (T-25) in a ratchet wrench rather than a screwdriver. You get more leverage.

Good luck!
