    The hinge on one of our UPVC doors snapped and I cant find any on the internet that look anything like it. Does anyone know what this kind of hinge is called? (The last picture shows one of the two remaining hinges.)

    Thank you.

    The new hinge arrived. How do I go about drilling the 2 new holes in the door (yellow arrows)? Thankfully the two new middle holes line up with the 2 old outer holes. I can't open the door enough to get a drill at the right angle. Will I need to take the whole door off? And should I replace the other 2 hinges? I ask because that website suggests "We always suggest changing all the hinges at the same time to ensure the geometry of the hinges works together."

    Why is it wrong? 4 holes instead of 3? If that is the problem, do you know where I can get one with 3 holes?

    Apart from the holes it does seem like the right dimensions to be used with that door and the bit of the hinge which is screwed to the wall looks like it has the same number of screws etc. and size.

    But I've never done this before so could be wrong ...

    Yes I ordered the ERA challenger. I didn't order the WEL because it didn't have this box bit at the end of the hinge. Does that box bit not matter?
