    Xj door hinge and door latch

    well last night at 1200 am i got home in the rain opened my drivers door and the weld broke on the top hinge ,just great and to top it off the door latch turned so i could not relatch the door ..lovely ...now that it has stopped rainning and did so reading i still have not been able to get the latch back to the proper opening .right now i am in burlington ..i have taken the latch nuts out but this looks like to me a waste of time ,is there a way to get the latch to turn while it is still bolted to the door ??maybe using a long socket and hammer ?...now the weld. i know that there is a kit to fix this but i think that it will still have to be welded and i am tight on cash
    any ideas on this would greatly thanked
