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. And many cheap replacement hinges don't fit properly and aren't even made of the proper gauge metal.
Today you can fix your car or truck properly and have money left in your pocket with a new quality replacement hood hinge from K-Metal.
