Just discovered that the main skylight has a broken hinge which has led to a crack in the acrylic and the hinge pin is broken. Anyone faced a similar problem ? Without the oil the winding mechanism pushes the cover backwards without lifting and putting extra stress on the remaining hinges. Any ides where I could get spares or how to repair the crack?

Is it a Heki 3? There is a hinge and fittings here.

Thanks Ploughlin, think I must have a different skylight, it appears to be a Remis, at least that's the only name I can find, and has a different fitting for the pin.

Thanks Matt vw seems to be a slightly different hinge arrangement, which doesn't surprise me because the one we have is just a problem waiting to happen.
