Why do you think it's the hinges that's keeping it from opening? More likely the latch or release linkage is the trouble! The hinge pins and bushings can be replaced but to replace the hinges themselves...it's a BIG JOB for a TOP NOTCH body shop!!.. Original hinges are 'welded' on from the factory!!! The latch will have to be jimmied to get the door open... Professional locksmith or 'really good mechanic' needed!!....
