Rear Hinges - Original setup Image please

Ref previous posting I only recently obtained this Wagon and it seems either someone monkey'd with the rear hinges and left out parts or re-assembled incorrectly.

As a result the door has dragged the rear plate screws until it wore thru and subsequently bottom inside frame has rusted out.

I described assy to RN and they advised the hinge assy's not correct.

Have ordered rebuild kits for rear hinges. And will also be replacing the door

Can anyone post image(s) of what the hinge assy should look like?

Are there any other issues I should look for?

I wish someone would make alloy kits for the rear . . .

*I have read all searched postings - the rear tire is on with orig tire size.


BTW - RN has the LR Torx bolts for the rear hinges so that they match the new bolts in the L&R Door hinge kit(s)

I'll shoot a few when I get my truck back from paint. Just had a new rear door installed.

Alloy's for the rear? Why? You can remove the pins and regrease them, which was the problem with the front door hindges.

oyeah get one of these also then you wont ever have problems with the rear door, that being said If you are having to replace your rear door try George at RDS first.

Nice Wagon!

Those the original zinc bolts on hinges?

It seems my center hinge is setup different and there is either no brass bushing or it is worn out. It has a acorn nut on the end with most of the spring showing. The top and bottom or like your image therefore I assume this is correct?

I guess I strip paint and prime hinges, rebuild each hinge w/ kit and teflon-lithium grease inside pins, and then repaint assy?

Follow-up Post:

Mantc mount? Does it swing with door or do you unlatch it seperate? Cost?

www.lrparts.net < anyone ever order from

Eric, how much you pay for rear door?

I have heard the new doors are all steel.

Anyone ever order from these guys?

www.lrparts.net

Prices seem reasonable. However, not certain current dollar conversion . . .

The alloy kits are a bit pricey but ends the rust problem for good

I paid 347 from RN. New Hindges and bushes.

Mantec was around there as well. If your getting a new door get the carrier.

I believe it swings with the door, but I don't know for sure as I haven't installed it yet.

Mantec carrier - which door? Holes?

I attached images, as you can see someone slapped some paint on the hinges/bolts which I am cleaning up/repainting, the center hinge is setup different, RN advised that the acorn nut (middle) should be a regular nut w/ lock ring/washer like others.

What confuses me is the middle door pin. The others are recessed w/ a slot head pin. Center has a Torx and no recess. Is this right? Wrong hinge and or pin?

Trying to insure I have all correct parts ready when ordering. Any data / images greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

_______________________________________

Eric,

347.00 included the rear hinges?

What about the holes in the door?

?????????
If you go to the Mantec carrier . . . can you or should you use a Safari door i.e without the tire carrier holes?

Do you use another style door (without holes) if replacing and using the Mantec?

The Mantec swings with the door and is attached in the same location as the previous carrier on the door. Just a few new holes will be added.

Thats what I had figured. What is confusing is there is no recess in the center hinge.

Is it supposed to different? Wrong hinge?

Jeff, you have link? I search RN for rear hinge(s) cannot find

Just the door. Shipping was additional as well. I told the body shop to order all new hindges et all.

The torx pin is wrong as per above. should be a flat head.

no apologies I greatly appreciate the post . . .

The center hinge is just confusing me. I realize the pin itself must be wrong as everyone has indicated so including RN. It’s the fact there is no “bowl” for the screw to recess and I have ordered 3 hinge kits to rebuild and trying to establish if I need hinge too.

Perhaps the center hinge has been replaced in error by a series? My wagon is 97 - any changes from year to year?

The hinge shape is exactly like the bottom just no bowl. Puzzled :o
