Default replaced hinges today...

My pass side hinge snapped a week ago. Finally got the replacements...they are the 'H' revision which is the final revision. The hinges out of my '04 (mfg June '03) were 'F' revision, so they were replacements for the original 'D' hinges.

Since the 'H' hinges were fitted from 08 onwards on the cars with the more powerful lift motor (which I have retro-fitted to my car)I thought they would be beefier. But there seems to be no discernible difference between the two sets. The new ones are not made from thicker or wider stock.

Quite a PITA to get the deck lid properly located fore/aft, left/right. and flush/square with the quarters when the hinges have been unattached at both the lid and quarter ends.

Next to replace the drivers side quarter mounted tail light that the lid tore the lens from when it racked itself opening with the broken hinge.
