I wish. If it'd been the pins, I would not have been looking for a
replacemetn door. I'd be popping into the garage, grabbing a bit of
plastic or brss stock, and machining it to size.
No, what failed on my drive was the plastic hinge part that bolts to the
dront of the clamp arm and that's attached to the door itself by said
pins. The plastic had gon very brittle, and the part where the pins
actually fit was broken apart.

It is, thanks. Somebody else posted a URL for a picture of this machine,
which matches mine perfectly _apart from one thing_. His says 'Panasonic
Senior Partner' on the front, mine says 'Panasonic Portable Computer'.
I'll bet they're the same inside, though.
