Rear Hatch Inside Cover

Any one have to replace the little gizmos that hold the rear inside panel on the rear hatch. I bought the little round black push in pins from the dealer, but the mounts have broken off the panel itself? Any ideas?

Re: Rear Hatch Inside Cover

I used 6 self tapping screws, coated the threads with loctite and screwed them into the hatch. Other than that you will have to replace the cover.

Re: Rear Hatch Inside Cover

I used some screws with the rubber with nuts in them that expand as they compress, got them at home depot worked for a bit but with washboard roads and bumps they seem to always work loose, so if anyone else has a better idea, Hint Hint

If you mean the trim panel, then yeah, I'd assume you can pick one up at the junkyard.

Re: Rear Hatch Inside Cover

Factory fix for liftgate trim coming detached was 6 or 8 strategically placed trim screws with washers under them.

Re: Rear Hatch Inside Cover

My problem is that the tabs on the trim are broken.. The junk yard is no real help since they are always busted up themselves.

Re: Rear Hatch Inside Cover

3m makes a wonderful panel bonding adhesive that we use in the bodyshop for replacing certain body panels it will work great for glueing the buttons back to the cover.Not sure of the part number but its a black two part glue labeled as panel bonding adhesive.

Re: Rear Hatch Inside Cover

junkyard... but now that I have a bunch of other crap on the panel I have switched to using tie-down hardware so it is more secure, also so I can hang stuff from it

Re: Rear Hatch Inside Cover

would like to see how you mounted that as I can tell I can see two screws one at each corner. Are you also using those Tie down points to also hold it in place? Where did you get those lights and how are they wired? Cost? I want to fix mine and also add the speaker bar from the newer cherokees.

Thanks

Re: Rear Hatch Inside Cover

Like most here, I used self tapping screws. It doesn't take many to hold it on well enough, since the top has a lip to hold it on.

Re: Rear Hatch Inside Cover

The problem with screwing into the (older) hatch is that it's fiberglass and the threads will rip out unless you use an insert of some kind. For the tie-downs I used some of the spring-nuts/U-nuts like hold the bumper brackets in place.Some kind of nutsert would probably work best

The lights and speakers are bolted to the plastic, which is why I had to beef the way it was mounted
