Console hinge repair

Anyone used the kit on theirs ?

The SOB who broke into my boxster destroyed the hinge, the top is fine and the pin in front that locks is out...I could JB Weld that back in place...but my hinge is trashed.

Thanks

Dwight

Order a repair kit from Pelican or Suncoast... It took me a whole half hour to git 'er done, including cleanup and celebratory beverage.

I will take a picture of how I repaired mine. It cost me about $3.45 and about an hour of my time, but its MUCH stronger than factory. Nobody ever really looks at the hinge right??

You'll need a rivet tool.

I used the factory hinge repair kit. Quick, easy, strong. Cheap enough that it would not have been worth my time to fabricate something on my own.

The console repair kit uses two rivits to attach the replacement hinge. It is a quick and solid repair.
