    Hinges from other cars that are the same as the AE86

    These cars have the exact same hinges (same part numbers). I also heard the AE82 rear door hinges work as well, but they don't have the same part numbers and I haven't tried it, so I dunno, but if they did, then I'm sure they'd be in decent condition. Anyways, on with it.

    Lower Hinge on the AE86 has the same part number as the following vehicles:

    Front door lower hinge, 1983-86 Tercel (AL2#)
    Front door lower hinge, 1984-87 Corolla (CE80, AE82)
    Front door lower hinge, 1985-88 Cressida (MX7#)
    Front door lower hinge, 1983-86 Camry (SV11, CV10)

    Upper Hinge on the AE86 has the same part number as the following vehicles:

    Front door upper hinge, 1983-86 Tercel (AL2#)
    Front door upper hinge, 1983-86 Camry (SV11, CV10)

    They're literally the same hinges. Same part number, same price.

    This is more for people to find them at the junkyard than to buy them from Toyota.

    dang, you should have posted this earlier. I just replaced my hinges with brand new ones. My door sagged worse than 70 year old boobs. And most of those cars are easily found in the junkyards too!

    I'm slightly confused, can you use these as upper and lower hinges?

    Some of the cars you listed for uppers and lowers are the same hinges.. so wouldnt that mean that they would essentially be the same part?

    I got a hinge off a 88 cressie pass front lower, today. Can that be used on the drivers front on my car or are they not interchangeable that way?

    True, but I looked it up for someone, and figured I'd post. For myself, I think everyone on this site knows I'd get new ones. Heh.

    Ditto. For the $250 (for all 4) that you spend, you only have to do fender r&r once, and they're a STRUCTURAL part of the car. IOW, you increase the chassis strength with new door hinges. Pulling used hinges, wrong color, extra fender r&r, possible slop, just isn't worth it, on a nice car IMO. On a daily beater, that's a different story.

    While you're in there, install some fender braces at the same time

    Good info as usual, Jeff!

    Are they interchangeable? (uppers and lowers?)

    It doesn't appear to be likely at all, otherwise they would have specified the same part# for both hinges.

    A clever machinist could "rebuild" your existing hinges

    However it's not that expensive for a full set of new hinges (from Toyota), and they do enhance chassis rigidity more than I thought they would.

    Then this makes no sense...


    Lower Hinge on the AE86 has the same part number as the following vehicles:

    Front door lower hinge, 1983-86 Tercel (AL2#)
    Front door lower hinge, 1983-86 Camry (SV11, CV10)

    Upper Hinge on the AE86 has the same part number as the following vehicles:

    Front door lower hinge, 1983-86 Tercel (AL2#)
    Front door lower hinge, 1983-86 Camry (SV11, CV10)


    Which in turn would mean that all the hinges would be the same, no?

    I know I could repin them, but i'd rather use good OE hinges off cars from the junkyard, 5 dollars per hinge, and if I get passenger side ones, they have virtually no play in them anyway from less wear and tear than a drivers side.

    Hah, I'll bet that's a typo... and that the uppers = uppers :e

    Hey Jeff.. do the camry hinge part #'s apply to both the front and rear door hinges? Betcha rear hinges from a camry would be used a fair bit less than fronts.. and 5$ a hinge is way better than 250 for a new set

    All of the numbers I posted apply only to the fronts I think, I didn't check closely enough for all the cars, I will though.

    I used al25 tercel ones in my ae86, front hinges
    i figured that the tercel had the smallest door, so it probably has the least amount of wear.

    worked out good, might be because my car had 410000kms on it at the time
    only the top one was worn, but i swapped both.
    I'd recommend changing them one at a time, upper first, if you think it could get tighter, change both.
    To get the gaps right i used a rag folded up and jammed in the door at the lower rear edge, so it lifted it up slightly while it was closed.
