Hood Hinge

My 2015 Winnebago Sightseer hood support came loose at the epoxy. What product should I use to re-attach? Thanks for any help.

I used J&B weld to reattach mine and have not had any additional problems. I thoroughly cleaned all contact surfaces to ensure the J&B weld made good contact.

Thanks for the quick response. Which one did you use? They have about a dozen different ones?

Orginal J-B seld for me as well on 2016 Sightseer.


I encapsulated the metal bracket by putting on enough epoxy to reach the edge of the bracket and onto the fiberglass hood.

JB is good
Adding 2 hidden SS bolts to each is permanent and not unsightly.

Thanks everyone for your input. I have started the process of using JB Weld to fix the problem. Time will tell.
