102,400 Miles

Rear window hinge snapped. The boot hinge is a 2-part item, so it hinges and supports the whole tailgate or just the rear glass. Its the bit that supports the rear glass that broke. Its been on its way out for some time, working loose and being re tightened every now and again.

I realised it was starting to fatigue so intended to replace sooner or later, but today, when closing the boot (not just the glass) the hinge finally snapped and the window popped ajar. Luckily opening and reclosing seems to be holding it on to the boot so I can drive until I fix it.
