Re: Wagon rear-door repair kit ... which is best?
What exactly is this problem?
Never had a tailgate problem with our 960, or 740's (fair enough, our 740's
we only had for 4 years each, and they were bought new... so we didn't
really have any issues with them, but our 960 is getting old and should be
experiencing age-related problems... such as potential, this one).
