Trying to put a new door on from a 97 gmc how do i get the pins out holding the door on by myself
Use a jack and piece of wood to support the door. Then just balance it with string or rope to hold it. Use a punch and hammer and knock em out.

you need a special spring compressing tool to remove and reinstall the hinge spring and then its a matter of removing the door installing the new bushing and rehang the door with new pins ive tried doing this while leaving the door on the car trust me its just harder that way good luck and please rate -jeff

You will have to remove the old ones (a round punch of about 1/4" works well, then remove and replace parts (two punch up, two punch down). BE SURE you have the door supported with a block of wood under the door while doing this. It would help for two people to do it also, but not 100% necessary. Good Luck ALSO REMOVE THE LATCH THAT KEEPS THE DOOR FROM SWINGING ALL THE WAY OPEN, THAT WILL GIVE YOU BETTER ACCESS.

I USE A PRY BAR TO GET THEM OUT. GETTING THE SPRING BACK IN DOES CALL FOR A SPRING COMPRESSOR. YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO GET ONE FROM A AUTO PARTS STORE, MAC TOOLS OR SNAP ON TOOLS.

SOURCE: The door pins are worn
The bushing goes on top of the hinge. and you need to make sure that it is seated all the way.make
sure its the right size bushing or it will turn and come out. also when you install the pins make sure
they have the retaining clips at the end to keep them from shifting back and forth. good luck!
