Morning All,

My van failed its test today and needs drivers door hinge pin replaced.
I had a look on ebay and online but cant find where to buy replacements.
Anyone have a clue where to look?
How hard are they to change?

Thanks, Dave

You can get them from ebay and I think they just bolt on. I don't think you need to take the wing off either to fit.

Knowing the way that VW "package" their parts, I wouldn't be surprised if the pin itself is not obtainable separately, and I suspect that you'll find that at least some of the wear will be in the sleeve (visually it looks like the hinge has a steel sleeve pressed into the alloy hinge body, with the pin going through that). So it's probably going to be best to replace the whole hinge anyway.
