The hinge pins and bushings in a hood hinge can become worn, which can affect the hood's position when closed and interfere with hood raising and lowering. The springs or hydraulic supports (if equipped) can become fatigued and no longer support the hood. Finally, a hood hinge can become distorted from physical damage, as would occur in a collision, in which case it would no longer be able to properly function or locate the hood between the fenders.
In the past your options for replacing a damaged hood hinge were finding a good used hinge, buying a cheap replacement, or paying big bucks for an OE hood hinge. Searching for a useable hinge from a scrap yard is a waste of time, because you may end up owning a hinge that's in even worse condition.
Today you can fix your car or truck properly and have money left in your pocket with a new quality replacement hood hinge from Replace. Replace offers OE quality body parts at less than original equipment prices. You get the same quality part that you'd get at the dealer without the high dealer price. A Replace hood hinge will look and fit just like a hood hinge from the dealer, so your vehicle will look new again. Replace hood hinges are designed using the latest software so they exactly replicate the OE units, then they're manufactured using the most modern tooling, so the end product looks and fits exactly as designed. A Replace hood hinge is made to the same dimensions as OE with the same gauge steel.
Body repair is expensive enough without paying more than necessary for quality parts. A Replace hood hinge is the sensible alternative to the high dealer price markup. A Replace hood hinge will get you back on the road in a car or truck that looks brand new, without breaking the bank. Replace is so confident in the quality of its hood hinges that they're backed by a limited lifetime warranty against defects in materials and workmanship for as long as the original purchaser owns the vehicle on which the part is installed. This includes perforation (metal rust-through) due to corrosion in normal use.
