I would try to use small tack welds all the way around the latch if I had to weld it...but my advice is to hold the fuel door in place, or have someone hold it for you, and then drill two small holes through the hinge and into the body of the car, and screw two small metal screws into place. If the heads of the screws are getting in the way, you can grind them down with a small rotary tool or likewise to where about 1mm is left of the screw, and that should solve your problem.

Have someone lift and shake the door while you watch the hinges to see if they are loose. If the hinge pins are worn, the door will sag and make it difficult to close. You also may need to replace the nylon bushing on the door strik pin if there has been too much weight when the door closes. The strike pins can be replaced but if you haven't already done one, you might want to have someone help you or do it for you. It happened to me. If you open the door, lift up and down on the bottom of the door to see if it loose where the door hinge is bolted to the fender. If it loose where it is bolted to the fender, you will need to tighten the bolts. If the nuts are stripped in the fender, take it to the body shop. What was stripped in my door was the nuts inside the fender that the bolts went into. You could just have a stripped bolt. I had the choice of taking off the whole fender to fix it or weld the door hinge tho the fender. I chose to have the body shop weld the hinge (much cheaper). They did a perfect job welding the hinge so the door fit and matched perfect. I bought the car used and the fit was better that when I bought it.

To repair a broken door hinge on a 1991 Cherokee Briarwood, a new piece of metal should be welded in to hold the hinge. Then, a new hinge should also be welded in that is aligned with the door pin.

Drivers side fender well by the hood hinge

This is the most difficult hinge to replace on that vehicle. The original hinge is welded in place. The replacement hinge bolts in. In order to gain access to the back side of the hinge that is welded to the cab the entire dash assembly needs to be removed. Many times the original hinge can be rebuilt in place with pin and bushing kits and a little welding and drilling of the holes if they are damaged/oblonged. You will need a special tool to r&r the door hinge spring. This tool is available from your local auto parts store for less than $20.

NOTE: Front and rear door hinge checks can be removed and installed using the same procedure. NOTE: The front door hinge check can be serviced without removing the complete hinge assembly. Perform the following procedure: Removal 1. Open door with broken hinge check. 2. Remove exposed hinge-to-body retaining bolt and retain. 3. Insert a chisel, 267mm (10-1/2 inches) long with a 19mm (3/4 inch) cutting blade, between hinge half on body and back side of hinge check. Hammer until chisel unseats rivet securing hinge check-to-body side hinge. 4. Remove broken hinge check and discard. Installation 1. Loosely place new door check and elastomer reinforcement into body door hinge. 2. Install door hinge-to-body retaining bolt to secure new hinge check and reinforcement-to-body side hinge. Tighten bolt to 25-35 N-m (19-25 lb-ft).

I had one person heat the hinge with a welding torch until it was cherry red, and then I used an air chisel to inch it out. We did this back and forth getting about an 1/8 of an inch each time. Replace with a new hinge and use the pins with a grease fitting.

I believe your question is how you go about repairing the hinge on your laptop. To answer that question, the hinge is the part that holds the laptop open when you lift it. To get a basic, but effective method to repair it, check out eHow's topic "How to Repair a Broken Dell Laptop Hinge". Although it states its for Dell laptops, it is effective for other types of laptops as well.

Buy a new hinge from the dealership it should cost about 20 - 25 dollars. you will get the upper and lower hinge for either the driver or passenger door. there are only four bolts holding each hinge on . use a marker to mark where the old hinge was then take off the old one. you can do this with the door being ajar but i am told that it is easier with the front fender off. it will probablly take two people to do this. I would also suggest that you purchase the haynes manual for the car they are very useful.

Raise the hood and support it in the center with a stick between the lock and radiator support. The opposite hinge will keep the hood up, for the most part. Have a folded towel or blanket to protect the fender and windshield from the rear corner of the hood. Remove the 2 nuts holding the hood to the hinge. Lift the hood corner to free the studs from the hinge, keeping control of the hood to rest it on the blanket. Now you can remove the 3 bolts holding the hinge to the body. Two bolts on the top of the hinge are accessible from the outside; the third, bottom bolt is accessed from the engine compartment. Reverse procedure to install the new hinge.

The right front fender on the 2003 Honda Civic is held on by several mounting bolts and screws. Raise the hood and loosen the bolts. Raise the vehicle and remove the wheel to reach the bolts in the wheel weld. Remove the bolts inside the door hinge and the screws on the bumper. Remove the fender.

Yes, the hood hinges bolt to the hood and then go down and bolt underneath of the cowl that runs across the front of the engine compartment.

Buy a new plastic hinge Volvo part number 31265160. To replace the hinge, push the two center pins through using a punch. This will free up the broken hinge and you can remove it. Attach the new hinge to the door, then set the grommets into the openings and push the pins in to retain the grommet. BE CAREFUL NOT TO PUSH THE PINS TOO FAR. All they need to be is flush with the grommet.

A hinge joint is not immovable. A hinge joint has one plane of motion. A good illustration of a hinge joint is the knee joint.
