Broken hinge in the back

The hinge that connects to the top panel, is broken. It's not the actual hinge to the power panel. It's the part that the keyboard sits on top of. The piece that holds the mouse pad and buttons. It's the whole silver piece. Just trying to help you understand what the actaul piece is.

2002 honda odyssey power sliding door roller replacement. Is this a hard job to do?


Not very difficult if like my '99. Be sure to purchase the correct hinge for "power" door. Here are the steps:
  • Remove rear tail light (2 screws and pull from socket)
  • Remove two screws from rear of hinge cover panel
  • Remove bolt from front of hinge cover panel
  • Open door around one foot and rest the back end on something about the same height
  • Remove the three bolts from the hinge connecting it to the door
  • Loosen slack on cable by unbolting pulley under inside rear panel (tire tool storage on driver side)
  • Slide broken hinge out back of rail
  • Replace new hinge and put all back together
I don't know if there is a simpler way to loosen the slack on the cable, but this is how I did mine.
Hope this helps.

Can't close doc cover properly - seems 'broken' at hinge - can I fix this myself?


The left hinge breaks often enough that Brother changed the part number of the part. I hope that means the new part is stronger; I haven't seen one come back for a second repair. Assuming it's the larger, left hinge that's broken (It always is.), you need an LP2403001 HINGE ASSY L. You can find it from a servicing dealer or online, and it's easy to replace.

Look at the back of the machine and find two large phillips screws in holes. They keep the hinge blocks from coming up all the way out of the machine. Remove both of them and lift the top cover up until it's connected only by its cable. It might take a helper to hold the cover, but you need to unscrew the hinge assy. from the top. The three screws are obvious and easy to reach now that the cover is loose. Put the new hinge on, lower the top back down so the hinges drop into their holes, and put those screws back into the holes in back. You're done.

Can I get parts to replace broken hinge? I have an HP Officejet 6210 All in One.


In the mean time, I kept my unit working by just removing the broken top half of the hinge.
You have to remove 5 screws using a TORX T10 screwdriver. First remove the small plate covering the back of hinge on the outside. Then remove the two vertical screws at the top of the hinge up under the hinge lip. Then open the cover (be careful to hold it in place so as not to damage the three flex connections between the lid and body) and remove the other two screws at the top of the hinge. Remove the broken top half of the hinge and lower the cover back down. Until you find a replacement hinge, you can put a piece of heavy duty tape on the back where the hinge was.

Battery drained charged now will not start


In my 2000 Durango, after changing the battery it again failed... figured out that the rear window wiper motor has aged so much it had difficulty wiping, then the last time I used it, it couldn't make it back to the "parked" position so it was always sucking juice to try and make it the last 1-2" so it could release from the battery grid.
Since I have yet to replace that wiper motor, I removed the top trim panel on the back hatch. Once panel removed, from the outside looking at the back of the truck, on the top, left near the hinge you will see a modular connector, unplugging this disconnects the rear wiper from the battery curcuit.

Perhaps if not the rear wiper, a door window button (any of the 4 doors) is jammed with a pebble or something, always trying to make the window go up?

If the vehicle was broken into, perhaps there was some components in the door that were shorted.

It's likely the source of the power drain is coming from an "Always On" curcuit, or a part that has a direct connect to the battery (through fusepanel).

There is a "small component" fuse panel at the drivers side, door hinge area. A second one for "large draw" components is under the hood, drivers side, close to the windshield (but actually above the wheel).
