megane rt sport 1999 tailgate snapped off

My Renault Megane RT sport (1999 1.6) tailgate has just snapped off at the hinges. When I looked closer it appears that the pins in the hinges have sheared off - leaving them within the hinges themselves. A brief look and assessment has shown that the pins/bolts are both jammed solidly within the hinges on the tailgate and the part of the hinge on the body, that can be removed, has the ends of the pins solidly attatched to that hinge part.

My question is how would i go about repairing this? I think that i would have to somehow punch the hinge pins through the holes that are on the tailgate part but they almost look welded. Can these be bought seperately? would it be easier to get an new tailgate?
also is the wiring to the tailgate easy to disconnect?
thanks for any help
