To get the door off you have to take out the door pins. The top pin goes in upwards and the bottom pin downward. Make sure you put a jack under the door frame to ease pressure on the pins. Tap pins lightly to remove them. Just like a house door. You will need new bushings. If you find that the bushings are not fitting snug to the hinge, loose, you may need to drill the hole out a bit bigger, and use an over sized pin and bushing to replace it. Good luck, I hope this helps, please rate this solution

The handle mechanism wears over time. I went on eBay, bought a color matching handle for under $20 and replaced it myself. You have to be careful when removing the plastic panel bezel that surrounds the handle, drill out two rivets and your door will open like new!

The door hinges have pins in them. The pins have bushings in the hinge. If you go down to your local parts parts store you will be able to purchase them. They are brass colored. You will need to unbolt the doors and use a punch to hammer out the bushings and use a hammer to replace them.

Prado 120 back door sagging

you can only do limited adjustments, First open the door and grab it by the back edge, see if it moves up and down, if it does the hinges are worn and need to be replaced. If no then open the front door and you will see the hinges of the back door, Loosen the bolts and have someone lift the back of the door slightly, Tighten then re-check. if needed keep trying until it sits right. You may also have to adjust the rear latch which is simply a matter of loosening the screws and adjusting as required.

1994 chevy camaro driver door will not open. all

With the window down, reach inside and find a place to the rear on the door that you can lift from. Then try lifting while you pull on the handle. I have seen the door hinge bushings get bad and let door sag, and then the latch won't release from the striker.
Its the only thing I can think of as being the problem if everything is moving inside the door as it should. If you do get it open you can check the bushings by having the door almost to the closed position and lift up on it if they are bad you will feel the play in the bushings. If this is the problem you can replace just the bushings and not the whole hinge. Thats when you are probably going to have to talk to a body shop.
