Hi there and welcome.

TBH, given the time of the year, your options are really quite limited, and will in reality only amount to what is in effect a temporary fix.

If you have a length of rope, you can insert a section at the top of the glass (closing the window to hold it in place), whilst feeding the remainder through the open tailgate, tying it tight, then locking the tailgate in place.

It's not ideal, but until you can obtain the parts needed (or someone to look at it), then at least it partially secures the car.



This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
