Re: renault modus front door hinge

I am defeated, I am sending the car to the bodyshop. I have fitted replacement hinges and it didnt make any difference. After careful examination it looks like the "A"frame mounting studs have been pulled from their fitting. The hinges are over engineered in that they are made from a 5mm thick stamping, the "A" from a "tin can" with a bit of re-inforcing plate.---Moral of the story "dont go out on a windy day in a Modus"
