    Do you think it's possible to support weight of door and replace the hinges one at time?

    I'm not sure I can figure how to get full access to bottom hinge?

    Is your new pin simply an allen head bold and nylock nut?

    I'm thinking to replace with new hinges, and if they wear quickly I'll get the old ones rebushed.

    Hi woodwormm,

    Removing or leaving the door on is a two man job either way. If you do leave it on you could support the door then remove the stay and this will allow the door to go back just a little further. Its important to have someone hold the door so it does not swing back and make contact with the body. Access is not an issue, just use a ring spanner (single hex preferably).

    I removed the door as I needed to take the hinges to the engineer shop but must say he had them ready same day.

    When you put them back on just line them up with the paint marks (take your time) and there will be very little if any final adjustment once they are on. I got it almost spot on with just a little adjustment needed at the striker. I tension the bolts on the body.

    Bolts are allen key head with nylock nut making them serviceable although they will see this vehicle out easily.

    Merry Christmas

      I replaced one hinge on mine with genuine from amayama, $38 aud.

      You can change them without removing the door, just support the door with a block of wood and a jack and get someone to hold the door assy.

        Hi OziOffRoad

        I just found your post and I think it will help me. However, the photo's don't seem to be there anymore. Any chance you could repost them or send them to me? Much appreciated.

          The original photos are gone.

          Basically fit washers where the yellow lines are on the bottom hinge.
