Is it possible to replace the hinges on the rear door, my bottom hinge has flogged out due to the weight of the spare wheel. Is it a simple fix or does it require a new door.

Thanks
Gary.

Ferrett,

Thanks for the offer, but I am on the east coast and this is my daily driver so can't afford to have it off the road for the week it would take, thanks for the offer anyway.

Maybe you could buy a dud set real cheap from a wrecker and send them over to The Ferret to be re-co'ed

hi, my husband and I are refurbing two GQ wagons, both with busted pins in the hinges of the large barn door. Is there anywhere on the east coast that can repair or replace? Husband is not having much luck repairing them himself as he is overworked and has no time! One car is in pieces, the other still on the road. Thanks, I look forward to hearing some suggestions.

My RH door snapped one. I bought the RH lower one from Mr Nissan, $116.00 YEOWCH!
Then I got a grease nipple kit and drilled and tapped grease nipples into all 4 hinges. Now I grease these whenever do the underside, each oil change.
Cheers

Hoping to liven this thread back up.
I've taken the hinges off the barn door , punched out the pin, punched out the bronze collars, where do I get new ones from?
New hinges for all 4 barn door corners = 1050 bucks nz from Nissan
I've read that much I not sure what refered to what,. Did someone say gu hinge pins available and not gq but similar enough to use. Also Nissan atlas truck pins?

Ok, update for who's interested,
I bought some d22 bronze collars for a navara.
They have a bit of slack on the pin but I've read somewhere that can take up on assembly of the hinge.
So.
I'm going to take apart the bottom hinge that's seized or tight and use them on that pin and housings.
If it works I'll do same to other lower door hinge then the only new hinges needed are the top ones that have the play.
I'll keep posting info on this because there's alsorts of rubbish about drilling them out or buy new hinges.
Well I've got them apart.

For what it's worth I replaced the hinges with the door on. It was easier by far than the drivers door hinges. Genuine Nissan and not cheap !

Does anyone have a clear answer about where to buy a suitable pin kit for GU rear doors? Rather than the whole hinge from Nissan?
