Hi,

Wind blew open cabin door and the wood on the edge of the door where the hinges screw in has split. Any thoughts? Pictures attached.

Cheers,

Andy

:welcomeuhm:

first open the door, it will then just lift off those hinges, (there will be 3 or four of them, make sure they are all aligned upright to ease removal)

next remove the hinge from the split side, (it'll unscrew anti-clockwise)

Now squirt some "gorilla glue" (other brands are available) in the split and clamp the edges together. leave to set..

IIRC the thread on those is a coarse 8mm ...with the clamps still on replace the upper hinged part, making sure it's aligned correctly (vertically) and lift the door back on to its hinges. maybe a 2 person job.

Should you do anything about stopping the crack (maybe drill the end and fill it with a wooden plug/dowel and glue). Is it overkill?
