Rear Door Hinges


Recommended Posts

Now I suspect that this is quite a commom problem with Disco's. The lower hinge on my 300 has got quite a lot of play in it, and as such is causing the rear door to drop and catch on the bumper. I have a new hinge to go on which will hopefully cure this problem, so, can anyone suggest the best way to approach replacing the hinge?

I've had to do this on mine.

Lessons learnt:

It is possible to do it on your own

Replacing both saves having to strip the door out again a few months later

(Although you would not take them both off at once!!)

It is a REALLY GOOD IDEA to take the spare wheel off before you start.

(I am prepared to acknowledge learning that the hard way! :D )

Also - if you are on your own, a jack with a piece of 2x2 cut as a prop will be handy
