Replace door hinge 2000 gmc sierra

How exactly are the hinges ruined? To change the door on Sierras you drop out the pivots the hinge swings on. If the hinge bodies are the damaged part it's going to cost you money. You will need to get a GOOD body work specialist to cut out the old hinges and re-weld new ones in. Get the specialist to check the body and frame in case the wind has bent something else.

Replace hood support

NOTE: It is not necessary to remove the hood to replace the hood hinges. Hood hinges can be replaced one at a time.

1. Using a grease pencil or equivalent, mark the position of the hood hinge on the hood and body for the hinge being serviced.
2. Support the hood and disconnect the support cylinder from the hood.
3. Remove the bolts that secure the hood hinge to the hood .
4. Remove the bolt that secures the hood hinge to the front fender.

My daughters 1994 toyota corolla hood just blew off. i am wondering how much this will cost to repair and where to go to get one? If we can get a hood - My husband and son can put it on. . . .i think

Wow! That must have scared the heck out of her! Because the car is 16 years old, a new hood won't be available. Your best bet is to check a local auto salvage yard, most can try and locate one nationwide from other salvage yards, and have it shipped to them. Even that may be a bit difficult due to the cars age. Not a lot of demand for older car parts, so many yards crush up cars. That said, I still think you can find one, due to it being a common model, and many are still on the road. The problem will be the hood hinges. How badly they were bent, or damaged will not be evident until you try to bolt on a replacement hood, and have the job of lining things up, so it shuts properly, and is evenly spaced all around. Were the bolts attaching the hood to the hinges torn off? If they were, the bolts probably stripped the threads when yanked out. No way to tell from here, good luck on your project.

Hood latch only works occasionally

First verify if latch release is electronically operated or cable operated. If cable, push the latching mechanism back and forth, verify that it springs back into place. Then look at the shaft that the latch hooks to on the hood. Check if one is bent or see if the hood is not properly aligned on the hinges. You might need to raise the latch assembly so it hooks sooner on the hood.
