    Ok - so I've sesarched the site and found great info on replacing the hinge pins (which needs done!) but the lower door hinge on the left side door on our 1999 GMC savana 3500 is broken. The actual hinge. Kinda sucks, actually. We have 6 kiddos and we use/will use that door. A lot.

    When I google door hinge all I seem to find are the pins - does anyone know where to get an actual replacement hinge?

    Thanks in advance!

    Pikey - thanks! Looks like a bigger job than I anticipated...but the door is about to fall off! As I've inspected more today I've actually got 3 broken hinges on the side doors. Ugh.

    Sorry to hear that. That is not a super cheap fix. The hinges are pricey and if they are welded on it sucks even more.

    I had one "ear" break on mine and I had the local welding shop weld it back on for like $15 Worth a shot

    For us it was the door part of the hinge that broke. Local shop replaced the door (including paint) cheaper than it would have been to replace the hinge.

    I thought of looking for doors - but our local body shop gave me a great price and is willing to trade some pizza for payment! Van goes in next week!
