You need to purchase or borrow a door spring compressor. They aren't too expensive. You might be able to get one from the part store. You can however get it out with a pry bar. But you will need the compressor to get it back in.

How to remove door bushings


The only door bushings I am aware of are the ones on the hinge pins. Correct? If not, please clarify what you mean.
New pins come with new bushings, and the hinges are welded on so the pins are pretty much the only items replaceable. Not a fun job - because of the door stop springs you will need a spring compressor, and you will also need a special tool to drive out the old pins. However, both are available from a parts store or Amazon.
Just open the door and support it from the bottom, and then go for it, one pin at a time - for the upper pin, compress and remove the small spring, drive out the old pin, drive in the new pin and put the spring back. No spring on the bottom hinge - just replace the pin.

How do I replace the long screw that holds the door up on the door hinges,on a '97 gmc Sonoma?


I have done a 100 of these.

The hardest part is going to be to reinstall the spring on the lower hinge arm. this is not a screw but rather a pin.
There are two hinges that hold the door to body.
when the upper and lower pins are removed the door will come away from body, it is important that before you remove the pins you take a look at the hinges.
Pay close att. to the way the hinges sit inside each other and the way the pins go in. see if they go from top to bottom or from bottom to top. also note where the copper bushings sit in hinges. each hinge has one pin and two copper bushings top go into hinge.
Over time the pins and bushings wear out ,making door hard to open and close. When the pins and bushings get so bad that the bushing is worn out and then the pins are now wearing into the hinge hole itself then this get tricky. if hinge hole is egg shaped the new bushings will not last. the door will hang again in a few weeks. this is where is get costly, the hinges now need replacing. i have gotten good at welding the holes and filing them back to shape but this takes skill or hole will be wrong and bushing will not fit or line up.

Here is a youtube video to help you.
Take note. put jack stands under door with cloth to avoid scratching door.this is to hold door when pins are removed. have somone help you, they will hold door on stands. the wires will still run through door, pull door away from body a little to allow room to work.remove the spring, it will fall out as you remove pins, remove old bushings, clean hinge area and holes,next install new bushings, apply lube to holes for pins and on bushings, slide door back on frame hinges and install pins, next slide lock washers on pins to hold pins. last is the spring. you will need a spring tool, you may rent one at auto parts store. hope this helps good day.

6. Remove pizza sliding door rear latch with pizza remote control actuator rod attached to pizza latch, from pizza sliding door.-------------
First you need to get the right tools for the job and the right parts to fix the problem.There is a hinge pin in both the upper and lower hinges and four brass bushings and there is two different size bushings in each hinge and also two hinge pin retaining washers.as for the tools you need a spring compressor,jack,hammer,punch. First open the door all the way,put jack under door,I like to use a 2by4 board on top of the jack to help spread the wieght of the door out a little,next if the door has a wireing harness in the jamp loosen the rubber insulation form both the door and the body this gives a couble of inches of slack in the wireing.Next use the spring compressor to remove the spring,then use the punch and hammer to drive out the pins.it is very hard to get them to move an first but gets easyer as they start to move.I would recomend having a helper to hold the door upright as it will fall when the pin is removed from the hinge.Onece the pins are out move the door and jack away from the body to gain more axcess room the replace the bushings,two in the door side and two in the body side,then slide door and jack back and align hinge holes and install new pins. I allways grease the bushing and pins before installing.Drive the new pins all the way flush with the hinge and install the retainers.Reinstall the spring and reattach the wireing insulation. ------- Open the door so it is directly above the bench. Observe how all the fasteners, be they bolts or pins with bushings, are aligned. Generally, the bolts and pins point toward the center of the hinge from the top or bottom, The bolts and bushings are on the body-side bracket for the upper bracket and the door bracket for the lower one. This will help. Thanks please keep updated. please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

How hard is it to replace door hinge,pins and springs on a 2000 chevy blazer


The door hinge pins aren't very difficult to replace, the hinge itsself is. The hinge is actually welded to the door, so in order to replace it, you will need to take it apart, cut the welds, and weld a new one on, and paint it again. The hinge pins though are doable by about anyone. First, you will NEED these tools. A medium sized hammer, a brass drift punch, a long flat screwdriver, tire iron, or prybar, and something to rest the door on to keep from scratching it up, and to keep from pulling the wiring out. it should be about the same height as the bottom of the door. You may WANT these tools: door spring compressor, 1 extra person. First, start with the bottom hinge pin. You'll notice that there are a couple of washers around the tapered end of the pins. Ignore these; they're just decoration for all intent purposes. Pry out that spring that you see in next to the hinge with the prying utensil that you chose. Using that hammer and punch, drive out the bottom pin. Next, drive out the top pin, taking care to support the door, because when this one comes out, the door WILL fall. This is where your extra person and the milk crate, or whatever you chose to support the door come in. Be careful when driving the top pin out. The punch and hammer will come DANGEROUSLY close to the windshield, and result in a $190 job for a windshield and hinge pin/bushings, versus just $10 for the hinge pin/bushings. This is where you would repair the oblong holes that your door hinge undoubtedly has. You can get by with using something like Qwik Steel putty to fill in the gaps around the bushings if you want to stay cheap (you may end up having to redo it in a few years, but beats welding a new hinge on and having to redo it in a few years anyways. Or, you can choose to build the area up with a welder, redrill the holes, and go that route. Anyways, after you get your new bushings settled in, whether you used the steel putty route, welding, or just installed a new hinge, you can put the door back up there and the pins back in. I like putting the new ones in so the taper is at the bottom (keep thinking they look like they're gonna fall out the way GM puts them in there, though they never do), and then you have an option. If you want, you can leave the spring out that was in there. It will require a door spring compressor to put back in, but if you don't put it in, it won't do anything other than keep it from moving on its own when it's open. I don't bother with it. Hope that's what you're after, and good luck. It's not a hard job, but it can be a wrestling match putting the pins back in. Lastly, the door is a lot heavier than it looks, just FYI when you get it loose. Feel free to ask any further questions, I keep track of these.

How to replace door hinge pin and bushings without a spring compr


Harbor Freight has the tool for $3.99. I just bought one last Friday and replaced my hinge pins this weekend on my 2000 Chevy Blazer. You have to get that tool. Online they are $15.00. Make sure you support the door before you take out the old pins. I just lowered the window, took rope and tied it to the garage rafters and was all set. have fun!

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.

Both door hinges and bushings need to be replaced


Remove your doors and replace your bushings. You will have to manually replace the spring after you install the new bushings. It's kind of a pain to get it back in, but a little common sense, and prying will get it back in place.
