> J2/RD console lid hinge DIY , by 2000J25SP
Options V

So pretty much every 99-00 Elantra I've seen has a broken console lid hinge. It's not hard to figure out why.

The hinge is a wimpy piece of plastic that bends back and forth. After awhile, they break.

I picked this up at the store for $1.99

First remove the old hinge. Then put the new one on. I reused one of the holes and made a new hole. The plastic isn't very tough. No need for a drill, a screw driver works fine.

Do the same for the lid.

This is very easy and only takes a few minutes from start to finish. I regret not doing this sooner.
