    Car Door Hinges Worn – Repairs in Hamilton

    About worn door hinges:New car door hinges in Hamilton

    A worn door hinge can be annoying to deal with, as well as a safety hazard. Worn door hinges can cause your car door to sag downwards, or not open shut properly. This means that you will have to lift the door into position when you close it. A sagging door happens because the door frame becomes unaligned with the rest of your car, preventing it from closing properly.

    Additionally, wear or corrosion around the door hinge can lead to your car failing its Warrant of Fitness. Car door WOF requirements >

    Many modern cars have door hinge bushings. These bushings are easier to replace than hinges and absorb the majority of wear that occurs when you open and close your door. After a door hinge / bushing repair or replacement, your car door will be realigned with the rest of the vehicle. This will allow it to open and close without any difficulty. Sometimes, the problem will simply be caused by a few loose hinge screws, making for an easy repair. Other times, the entire door hinge or bushing will need to be removed and replaced.

     

    When to replace door hinges:

    Below are a few common symptoms of door hinges in need of repair or replacement:

    Car door is sagging – Worn or faulty door hinges will cause your car’s door to sage downwards, making it difficult to open or close.

    Door not closing properly – If a worn door hinge is left unattended, it can eventually lead to the door not closing properly, or even opening unexpectedly. This can create safety issues, especially if it occurs while you are driving.
