In this video I bring you along as I replace the center roller hinge on a 2011 Toyota Sienna. It is a really easy job with just a few simple tools.

    I would have definitely rattle canned a coat of flat black or semi black on it.

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Sizzlin' Samm says:

    Customer states: "Raw dog it!"

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michael O says:

    If the customer specifically asked you to paint it, then sure(as long as they pay for it!)

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Brad Klingensmith says:

    We could see your super non concerned face in the glass reflection.

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Nate Tallman says:

    I'd probably just rattle can clear coat the hinge before installing.

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Harry Kaminski says:

    It's white bomb spray it so giving Toyota the reach around going to make Honda jealous

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Eric says:

    I do believe that the company I work for electroplates those hinges with zinc. 😎

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Joe David Zuniga says:

    Nice job,Hola Mrs O

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Sean Dorn says:

    Looks like it’s cad plated. No reason to paint it, except to match the color of the van

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars BobsGT235 says:

    I would have painted it. Every shop has a rattle can of white paint lying around. It won't be the exact match, but at least it will blend in and not stick out like a sore thumb.
    Have a good day.

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars milstuff says:

    NICE JOB DUDE !!!😁😁😁

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mytee Patriot says:

    Dang you made that look easy – Look being the key word. I know if I do it there would be a lot more cussing, Bloody knuckles & tools flying around the shop. TY for the Video Love them all.

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mice InOz says:

    Bugger painting it, it is rarely seen.

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ivan Olsen says:

    a rag taped over the paint might also be a good idea …

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Thatdave says:

    Oh the shame on you feeding the children cholesterol Chicken ,the look on Mrs O's face ,all her effort to feed you healthy,you had one job Eric ,one job !!!!
    Seeing as you fluid filming the car ,then it's going to be around for a bit longer ? then painting the hinge would have been the better option,but if it's a brat hauler,I suppose by the time food and gunk gets spread all over the place,un- painted will surfice .

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars GsaUce Rug says:

    Did not know you were on Hinge.

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Graham Cooper says:

    I can't tell you how much I love watching your shows! You care so much about everything! I love how you "feed the children" with KFC and I see the price for that stuff is as stupid there as it is here in Canada! Oh, still waiting for the "Cooking with Mrs. O" channel! I'll be the first to subscribe! You both are awesome!

    Someone lite a fire under erics a$$. Hes dropping a video everyday now. I remember it would take a week before he dropped. I hope Scannerdanner gets that flame because it takes him and diagnosedan weeks to upload something. There are really only a few people I really look forward towards EricO, Scannerdanner, diagnosedan, pinehollow. Theres 2 more but I can't think of their channel name.

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Roger McMillan says:

    Hi mrso Eric that was a good job man but that is a pain in the ass job though got to pull that apart just to get that little thing out that's what happens with these trucks never had one but I can see that that's a pain when those Things Fall Apart I like it

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ironeagle2526 says:

    Love soup in a can chicken noodle

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jody C says:

    Eric: Mom's out of town kids. It's time for a Bucket of Chicken!

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rick Charb says:

    Looks like it is electrozinc plated…. it will be fine, outlasting the body parts.

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Latarian HoodRat says:

    Hey Eric!!! Fluid Film needs their own "Brake cleaner" sound!!! We live for those! Well I do.

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Wayne Dimirsky says:

    Nice video. This one caused me to spend some money. I went and checked out that Mouse Milk. Sounded like some good stuff and what I probably needed when trying to get a rusted brake line fitting out yesterday so I ordered some. I had to use heat but it was a struggle since my torch kept going out because it was so windy.

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John LaCroix says:

    TY,,,,,,WOW incredible very interesting super kool ,1st class great info.,, AAAAAAAAAAA++++++++++++ again great video I liked it a lot ,keep up the great work.

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Todd W. says:

    I always give the customer the option if they want it painted , most decline the paint job.,

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jack says:

    Nice

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jordan Levitt says:

    Nice Vid! My vote would have been for rattle can in black. It would have blended in with the glass, and no need to try and match the white…cheers!

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Garth Clark says:

    I'd have informed the customer that it came unpainted and did they want it installed that way or option b, have a body shop paint it to match or option c, use the best matching rattle can in white or a satin black color. You would think those rollers would be more durable…that door is subject to much use.

    Cat shot 😻

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kenneth BROWN says:

    Umm, we could see your "not to concerned" face in the window.

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rodney Fairborn says:

    Eric I have used a number of your videos repairing the kids cars . Having setup a Bend Pak lift in my Garage and have been a backyard mechanic from the mid 70s we have benefited from your expert videos as most of their cars are 10 year rusted Ontario vehicles. Thanks for the help. The cost of basic vehicle maintenance keeps climbing this helps them keeps costs in line. Now I need videos on keeping 4 grandkids maintained LOL. Rod

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars GeneSun says:

    Naw, no paint unless they wanted to pay for auto primer and paint. The best rattle can stuff just won't hold up to the sun and salt.

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars 8K10F1E says:

    In the news today: Eric O can’t find the hole. Mrs. O gives her reaction live at 11!

    If you're going to fake a torque wrench sound you need to remember that your torque wrench beeps not clicks.

    another door opens and another door closes.

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Greg Ambrose says:

    Dust and dirt are the greatest enemy of these doors. I have a 2004 Honda odyssey, doors still working but lots of maintenance, speaking from experience.

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars hipidydipidy says:

    should those be hit with silicone grease every oil change??

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kevin Steffen says:

    I work at a Yota dealer. If you roll down the sliding door window it takes a lot of the awkwardness away of removing/installing the hinge

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Brandon Mercer says:

    Eric, don't be mad but I just read that the fluid film is good at protecting electrical connections as well. I sprayed everything under our chevy express so if it ever comes to you for electrical issues I'm sorry in advance. Older me might not like this decision either. My hope is that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jess Treloar says:

    We can see your face in the window, that shouldn't be broken. You did not look very concerned.

  46. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tête Dur says:

    Eric, do you not have a 1/4 air ratchet? That would have made that job so much easier. Hell, Snap-off used to sell a 3/8 drive that was really slender, and the torque was limited to something like 30 ft lbs. I can't remember how many times I rebuilt that before it finally wore out and had to BCM it.
