    We were told that wd40 was the worst thing to use on hinges.

    Buy some stainless steel hinges and replace the crap originals, fix with s/s screws then mask and spray to colour of van. No more trouble, I know, I've done it!!! (different locker door)
    Cheers, Dave(y)

    The ali hinges react to the steel pins and seize -They are usually riveted on so it's a case of drilling out then boil them in hot water to relise -coat them with copper slip type grease and reassemble either rivets or self tapers -WD MAY FREE THEM UP BUT IT ALSO REMOVES/CLEANS ANY OIL OR GREASE THAT IS NEEDED -sPRAY ON SILICON IS BEST FOR LUBING
