Angle wrong broke glass
when I got the hinges I noticed that the angle did not quite fit the curvature of the glass. Against my best instincts I went and installed them anyway thinking they would be close enough. Wrong.
An hour and a half later when the sun hit the window and it got good and warm it shattered. If they do not fit your vehicle do not attempt to use them.

Ford Explorer lift glass hinges
The hinges were easy to install. Price was great and quality was good . The only thing that I did not like was they did not come with the gasket that goes between the nut and window .

Dose all of the hardware come With? All I really need is the hardware to attach to the window. on Nov 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, but you'll need the nuts you remove from the old latches. Be sure to replace these on a level surface. The vehicle can have a slight back to front incline. If you drop the retaining nut as I did, maybe they won;t fall in the door as easily. I had to buy some Ford hardware because I dropped the nuts inside the rear door. It's a snap to replace these if you follow their video. Two thumbs up for 1ADM.
Will these fit a 2003 Lincoln aviator?
