SOURCE: How to replace '96 Ford Explorer driver side exterior door handle

You will need to remove the door panel to gain access to the handle. Roll the window up or down as needed to get to the nuts that attach the handle to the door. You will also need to remove a rod the goes to the door lock. You will see the rod after the door panel is removed. Good luck.

SOURCE: Driver side door problems

Get a set of hinge pins and bushings. There is a tool that you can get at harbor freight or tool king for removing the bushings. I use a floor jack and a 4x4 block of wood to support the door. you will need a spring compressor to remove the door "hold" spring. Once you have that removed, you can use a brass drift or similar rod to tap the pins out. once they are out the door will be resting on the wood. I use heater hose to wedge between the fender and the door to prevent dents and scratches. tap out the bushings. ever so gently tap in the replacements. apply a generous helping of white grease to the bushing and pin. line up the door and insert the pins. you may have to apply an ever so light amount of tapping pressure on the pins to set them final. reinstall the door spring and lube the joints with white grease. be proud of yourself as your just saved a **** load of money.

SOURCE: 97 dodge dakota driver door sag, repair.

Likely nothing to adjust.
With the door open, see if the door can be lifted up and down while looking at the hinges. If there is play, the door hinge pins/bushings are worn out, and on some vehicles, the hinges are not serviceable, and replacement will be needed. G/L

Why does my 2002 town and country blows cold air on the passenger side and i have no floor heat in either driver or passenger sides?

These vans have a bad design on the heater blend door which is located on the heater box behind the dashboard. The hinge on the blend door breaks and will not move causing the air not to circulate through the heater. Do you hear any clicking noise? You may get lucky with a repair. Go to the eBay site and in search put in-blend door repair-
Good luck and thanks for your question and I hope my suggestions help. Don't forget to rate me.

How do I adjust doors for 2002 ford explorer sport

You can loosen the bolts that hold the hinge to the door and to the body and make some adjustment. I would suspect that you'll need to replace the hinges, most likely part of the hinges may have bent. Also check for any damage to the door where the hinges attach.

Replace my drivers side door hinges on 1997 dodge full size van

Access to the bolt heads is through holes which are generally exposed once any interior trim has been removed. The lower hinge bolts are relatively easy but the upper ones can sometimes challenge the most supple of people. Sometimes other dashboard or instrument stuff must be removed or pushed aside. Sometimes such things as the fusebox must be removed.

Vehicle specific information could make your job easier.

If you have never replaced hinges before or removed a door, you have yet to experience the frustrations of door adjustment and the joy of finally getting it right with equal panel gaps all the way around and closing level with the surrounding panels and without riding up or down as it contacts the striker plate.
The latter point is of great importance if premature wear of the catch and the striker is to be avoided.

It is a job that should be faced without time constraints; quite simply it takes as long as it takes and for a novice that can be a long time.

If the hinge pins can be removed easily and refitted in situ and it is only the door side of the hinge that is worn then fitting half an hinge might make the task easier. It depends on the design.
Good luck!

Driver door will not close properly>

These things can be a pain, cause I have one... Have you adjusted the striker mechanism? Your adjustments are basically the striker and the door hinges. It is possible that you have worn door hinge pin(s). You may need to adjust the hinges. Rick

Driver door is all messed up

The hinge is possibly sprung where it attaches to the body. If it is welded to the body, a body shop will have to fix it. Sometimes you can shim behind the hinge if it is bolted to the body, but, usually not successful.

Door very stiff won't close tight

I have the same problem with the side doors of my 04 express. I put penetrating oil on the hinge pin with a hypodermic needle (hard to find). It is important that the oil gets into the hinge. I bent one set of hinges and broke a hinge because I waited too long to oil the hinge. The door may not close correctly because the hinge may be slightly bent. Keep all other hinges well lubed especially during the winter months when the hinges can be exposed to road salt. Fixing a bent hinge is difficult at best.
