I PARKED IN MY DRIVEWAY, RETURNING FROM THE SUPERMARKET IN THE 2005 EXPLORER IN A 90 DEGREE DAY. I OPENED THE TOP OF MY LIFT GATE AND STUCK MY HEAD IN TO GRAB MY BAGS WHEN THE RIGHT HINGE ATTACHED TO THE REAR WINDOW DEHISCED AND THE LIFT GATE CAME DOWN ON THE BACK OF MY HEAD. THE TORQUE WAS TOO MUCH FOR THE LEFT HINGE AND IT BENT , SHATTERING THE GLASS OF THE REAR WINDOW ALL OVER AND BREAKING THE BOTTOM DOOR FRAME IN 1/2. THE VEHICLE IS NOT DRIVABLE AS WHAT IS LEFT IS HANGING BY THIN HYDRAULIC ATTACHMENT AND COULD DROP AT ANY MOMENT.
