Question about 2000 Chevrolet Blazer
Driver side door needs replacement hinges. Any instructions posted on how to replace? Also, the radio cuts off when the door is completely shut due to the hinges needing replaced. Any instructions on this? Thanks
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.

Matchmark the hinge-to-body and hinge-to-door locations. Support the door either on jackstands or have somebody hold it for you.
Remove the lower hinge-to-door bolts.
Remove the upper hinge-to-door bolts and lift the door off the hinges.

If the hinges are being replaced, remove them from the door pillar.
Install the door and hinges with the bolts finger-tight.
