Lets replace the word hinge with hood supports !
I haven't replaced any on an Expedition, but the rear hatch ones on my old
Escape were easy enough to replace. Just use a 2x4 long enough to prop it
open safely, snap the old out, check the mounting balls to make sure they're
the same size as the new ones (if the new ones come with the mounts. Some
don't; they expect you to use the old ones), snap the new supports in place,
raise the hatch all the way, then close it manually. DON'T let it slam shut
the first time. Open and close it a time or two to make sure it's working
correctly, and that's it :-)
