Winshield Hinges

It looks pretty simple but what is involved replacing the winshield hinge brackets on my TJ. Is it as simple as replacing one bracket at a time?

You have to pop off the doors because the windshield hinges provide half of the door hinge but otherwise it's fairly straight forward. The worst part---and I do mean the absolute worst part--is breaking the screws loose. Which depending on the condition rust-wise of your hinges will determine just how hard the job will be.

Get a craftsman bit for the job the other ones I bought were junk, just make sure you have a craftsman bit for the job all the others I have used striped! When you do it make sure also to have a impact driver handy, makes the job a lot more easy!!!! good luck, they suck.

Heat the screws first, then its no problem, I did all my hinges that way, and not one would break free without heat first. Good luck.
