From the late 80's to the 90's jeep cherokees have a known problem with there front door hinges. the first time i seen this on a jeep i thought it was a fluke but now owning a 93 cherokee i am goin through the same problem... most of the time its not the door pins (i am not saying this is not what is wrong with yours, but for the most part it is not the pins). on the inside of the sheet metal, where the door hinges are welded onto, tend to rust/wear out and cause up and down play in the top door hinge. the only way to fix it is to take the door off and reweld a new brace or support underneath the sheet metal, and the weld the door back into place... my jeep is goin threw this process right now... but if you dont fix the door soon it will acually rip the top door hinge out of place, allowing the door to almost touch the ground when opened.

Re: 94 jeep cherokee door troubles
The door hinges are probably shot, or it's possible the bolts that attach the hinges to the door or body have loosened up. Have someone grab the door at the end near the outside handle, while open, have them pull up and down on the door while u watch the hinges. There should be no play in the hinge or at the attaching bolts. If u see movement @ the center of the hinge, they need to be replaced, if play @ attaching bolts, try to tighten them and check again. countrycurt0

Move the passenger side rear tire to the front, and passenger side
front to driver side rear. Switch the driver side rear tire to the
front and driver side front to passenger side rear. Repeat this "X"
pattern each time you rotate the tires. Rotate the tires from side to
side if the tires are different sizes on the front and rear.
This is the better solution. Hope helped (remember rated this help)
The dual blend door module is broken at the hinge. There is a revised part available at the dealer. You'll need to remove and open the ac/heater housing to replace it. To remove the housing, you'll need to lower the steering column and remove the instrument panel assembly. It's not an easy job but it can be done in your driveway if you have plenty of time and patience. I hope this helps.
its your door stop,id do the junk yard thing first,try to get one new you get new pins and thats good.or myself,if your hady with tools you can use the passengers side to copy one cut it out drill it and pin it.
It depends.. I use wd40 on my car a lot - to slow down decay :-) Also buying those non-toxic oil from Canadian tire - in green spray can - forgot the name... Try to use rust converter ( spray), then paint over using spray paint ( use some plastic steel if needed for patching before spraying paint). My car have many spots everywhere on all edges - all doors/hood. :-) I wait for dry summer days to repair it.
I have a 5.2L V8 Jeep Grand Cherokee and i know to reset my security system i actually have to go around to the passenger side door and lock and then unlock it again. Seems fairly odd but that's how i was told it was reset. Give it a go and lemme know!
