Question about 1989 Chevrolet C1500
My door is sagging real bad, i cannot seem to get the door off of the truck, am i missing something?
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.
