Customer Question

I read your post here:
I did exactly as indicated (fun!). While taking the old hinges off and after applying a generous amount of Penetrating oil and as As careful as I was, I could only remove one nus. The rest broke off. I tried to push back on the studs but they appear welded to the panel. What do you recommend? I though of having these hinges tack welded as a last result...

My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.
In some cases the hinges or pins can rust and require removal with heat or an air hammer in some cases.If the hinges are broken they will need replaced and may need replaced if you cannot get them apart.
Thanks Pete

Hello. Yes, I still need help with this issue. There are two hinges with two bolts per hinge. I've broken three of these no matter what I tried. I need suggestions as to how to proceed. I can include pictures if that helps
