1995 Chevy suburban back door hinges too stiff

The back clamshell doors are stiff and difficult to open and close. It looks like there might be a teflon or plactic spacer that is falling out of the hinge

Check for excessive wear at the latch & post -- if it looks like the latch mechanism is grinding down the post a bit there is very likely a teflon spacer missing. I had this problem on the front doors of my 95 suburban, it was getting really difficult to shut the door. A group of mechanic friends got together & replaced the spacers for me. Big job for such a little part.

Lubricate the hinge or the hinge will have to be replaced.. I recommend wd40 first, then a finger tip amount of grease on top of hinge pin. the oil from the grease will keep the hinge constantly lubricated. It's not too late.

I have a 1996 chevy suburban and my passenger door isn't closing nor latching on how can I fix this?


Look at the latch, if it sprung closed when the door was open then the latch hits the bolt when it closes. If the latch is closed you can take a rod like object and press the latch back into place while someone pulls the door handle.

MY DRIVER SIDE DOOR ON 1995 CHEVY IS HARD TO CLOSE HAVE REPLACED THE DOOR HINGES


have you ajusted the door catch pin to the corect position and does the door line up you might have to ajust the hinges to level the door properly


check the door lines make sure it hits the pin in the right spot if not grab the pin and loosen it with a pair of vise grips and ajust up down or in and out if required

if it is the hinges loosen the botom and top and slide th hinges eithor way remember to ajust 1 hinge at a time onlt loosen 1 hinge at a time if door needs to go up loosen the botom hinge slightly and pull up on back of door when it's almost closed then open door and tighten botom hinge
if too high try loosening it then push down on the back of door

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.
