    Worn hinge unfortunately, see pic, the point should locate on the cup when closed and keeps the hinge side tight on the gasket, as it wears the point sometimes rides on the outside of the cup and leaves this gap

    Hi,

    Can I ask how you were able to find the right hinge for your window and where you got them from please?

    Thanks
