How difficult is it to get to the rear window hinges? Mine are loose and the window is shifted to the left. I can open it and straighten it out, but after a day, it shifts over again. They just need to be tightened.

If you pop off the top of the interior trim around the top of the hatch, you'll see 2 rubber plugs. Remove the plugs and look into the hatch and you'll see a 10MM nut on a stud. Center the glass in its opening and tighten the nuts and it should stop the glass from moving left/right. Just don't go crazy on the nuts or you could pull the stud out of the back of the hinge.

There are plenty of used Gen II hinges on eBay (link below) and a few NOS ones there too.

There are also different hinges that can work, that are from the later Sport models, 2002 and 03 I believe. I haven't searched for any of them, but some may be cheaper. Good hunting.
