    Is this an Explorer Sport Trac? That is a unique question. You may need to go to a Forum for that vehicle to see if any other owner has experienced that problem.

    If the plastic is cracked into 2 pieces, then there's probably no good fix that will work as well as just replacing the component taking into consideration the abuse most tailgates get.

    Good advice, find a forum just for your model of Ford and there's probably a few Gurus on it that can help you with the best solution to the problem.

    Aren't forums great?
