The two bolt design doesn't stand a chance against the high winds in Newfoundland. I don't drive on the highway often but if I get over 50 mph I hear the airflow coming in through the gap, annoying. I also get a little rub against the fender, but no noticeable paint damage yet. Lock works fine. 2Sh3a - your gap looks a lot worse than mine. I'm trying to decide whether to purchase hinges myself and try to replace it in my buddy's garage (he has every imaginable tool and he's pretty crafty) or bring it back to an auto body shop. I did have a guy look at it last year when this first happened and he said something like $600 to replace the hinges. He put some epoxi behind the hinge base but that only lasted about 10 minutes. rejekted rekoning - thanks for the link to parts. Any thoughts about using the 2009+ GC hinges? Apparently they have a 3-bolt configuration.
$600 that's rough. If I fix it I'll definitely have to DIY. Maybe I'll just upgrade my stereo to drown the wind noise out lol.
