Rear Flipper Glass

My rear flipper glass takes a good little slam to lock shut compared to my Liberty. How is everyones elses shut for them?

Re: Rear Flipper Glass

... same and it takes just the right amount of downward swing to close the whole rear door. I already miss my Pacifica's automated version

Re: Rear Flipper Glass

Yup me too. I laughed at the Mercedes Trunk closer, until now. Man, I wish the Jeep had it.

Re: Rear Flipper Glass

Yeah, mine needs a good push to close -- maybe it'll loosen up a bit as it breaks in.

I'll tell you though, it'd be real easy to knock yourself or a friend for a loop with that window when it pops open! I see why they make you push the button on the remote twice before it springs into action!

Re: Rear Flipper Glass

I love the rear flipper glass and how wide it opens. Mine does take a little effort to shut- but I think that is neccessary to keep it wide open. It is great for sliding groceries in and out.

Re: Rear Flipper Glass

... more importantly is the fact that the glass springs out so quickly and with such force, that it is real dangerous, as the glass lip knocks you right into the face!
We had several close calls! DCX must address this issue and retrofit the spring, so that it opens slower ... I know that I will complain about the "wait time", but life is full of compromises and it surely is better to wait for the opening, than to wait for your nose job, new teeth, etc.

Re: Rear Flipper Glass

My only complaint is not having a power closing option on the door AND window. The window does "pop" open, but I wouldn't consider it a danger.

Re: Rear Flipper Glass

Just noticed that there is a button on the tailgate that you can push to pop open the flipper glass. I thought the remote was the only way.

Re: Rear Flipper Glass

I learned really quick if youre using the tailgate button to activate the glass being tall makes you a bigger target.
