Question about 1995 Jeep Cherokee
The driver side and passenger doors are starting to fall off, i dont know if its the hinges or a different problem.they are moving down and out from their normal spot can you help me?
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.

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
