Re: Need help

Thank you for reply
I'm in Spokane WA, FJ came from Illinios

The issue is the lower upside down U shaped item that the suicide door latches on to when you close door
I was told it's called a striker plate? Which could be wrong

The rust I spoke of was on that item (striker) which screws into uni body

Dealer had to drill the bolts out that holds item (striker) on to remove it, once they drilled bolts out the plate and nuts (that hold all together) inside uni body fell into uni body.
Dealer can not figure out how to get old plate and nuts out or get new plate and nuts in to screw new item (striker) on.
Dealer idea was cut in to uni body, pull out old plate and nuts then put new plate and nuts in to screw new striker and bolts in to, but they will not do this because they said it will compromise the A-pilar and they do not want to be responsible
Which is the Reason they have offered to refund me all my money on FJ

Hope that made issue more clear, I was pretty bent out of shape when I posted my problem
