As bad as it sounds... I believe you replace the whole hinge

That does not sound like a lot of fun.

need a hinge?

I got a passenger side white one, front and rear

I don't think the hinge is hard, its the door alignment afterward that may be a PITA....

[edit] Just looked at your picture more carefully, you need a drivers side hinge that I don't have, unless you mirrored your picture

Well I did have the hinges you need here. I'm kinda bent that they aren't where I put them. Darned kids...nobody knows nothin.

They're easy to get from a boneyard though.

I have given some thought to how to replace those if I had to. I believe I would remove the door from the hinges, leaving the hinges on the car, and then score the paint with a knife or mark it with a very fine pencil before I took the hinges off of the car, so they could be more easily aligned when I put the new ones on.

Score on the door also if you can before you remove it. Removing the door can be a challenge if you have to do it alone. Get a floor jack and piece of wood to put on the jack. Open door and raise jack and wood to just barely touch under lower edge of door. Even if you have another person helping you, this method makes it easier. The door is not light. Try not to sit in the car after you have the jack under the door as this will lower the car.
