Today I notice after putting groceries in the rear glass wasn't closing properly when I got home I took a closer look both bolts were rusted away that hold down the striker to the glass. Does anyone else had this problem ? and what size are these bolt's? my rear applique is already broken i'll just pull it off I bought a new one few years ago this will give me a reason to put it on now..... any help will be helpful thanks!!

My 2003 had a rear glass hinge factory recall. It wasn't shutting right and the little holes in the glass that the hinge attaches too were leaking. I took it to the dealer and it was all fixed for free.

You might just want to see if that is the case with yours. Also your pictures didnt work!

I had that recall done back in 2007 they replaced the hinges and the window struts brackets on the glass. Don't think the recall was for the striker.

For whatever reason your picture works for me now. Sorry I misunderstood!

No problem . i contact varsityfordparts.com by email there trying to help me out looks like its a rectangle medal plate with the bolts mounted on it. I guess if they can't help me i'll just have to buy bolts & washers from home depot i just dont know if thats going to stress the glass.
