    Anyone replaced the hinges on the driver/passenger doors? I think my hinges are shot, the doors fly open and don't have that midway-stopping point that they used to have...is it easy to replace the hinges or is it even the hinge that needs replacing?? Any help is much appreciated!

    It's not the hinges, it's the door-stop! ;) That thin bar in the middle has a bump in it that wears out. Replaceable, from $40-90...

    Ahh, make sense. Did you replace yours? Any idea of the difficulty?

    I got one off Ebay several years ago form a legit supplier, but I can't find the info right now. I think it was about $70 OEM.

    Note: side-specific part number:

    OEM TOYOTA TACOMA DOOR CHECK 68620-04010 DRIVER'S DOOR FITS 1995-2004


    https://www.ebay.com/sch/Exterior-/...&_nkw=door check 2004 Toyota Tacoma Base 3.4L

    Also check Camelback Toyota on some other Toyota vendors on TW.

    Shop around. And it is amazing how fixing one little thing like this that pisses you off every day will make your truck feel like new again.

    I don't recall having to remove mine. But I may just be misremembering. It was several years ago, and I've since sold that truck.
