I have an 02 Suburban and the right hinge came unattached from the glass. The left one is cracking but hasn't completely came off yet. Has anyone had this happen on a Suburban, Tahoe, or Yukon? Were you able to fix it without buying a new glass?

Sorry the picture is so big. I don't know how to make it smaller. Scroll to the right and you'll see the bad hinge.

You might try some JB weld 5 minute clear epoxy. I have owned several of these, and have never seen one come loose like that.

You need to get it attached quick, or you will have to buy a new back glass. The other side will break.

After researching it, it seems like it is a common problem after replacing the lift rods which I did a few months ago. Could I use windshield urethane?

I would think that is so flexible that it wouldn't hold the window very well, BUT that is just my thoughts.

The original stuff is pretty flexible. It feels about like RTV. I don't know if it's supposed to be that way or not.
