If there is rust, the bolts are loose and the hinge is working (moving) causing bare metal exposure to rusting. Tighten the bolts, iit will be ok.

I have a 98 Nissan maxima and main brace under motor going to the front is rusted brace is OK but what it bolts to is rusted how do I fix


go to a wreckers that handles your make of vehicle and buy that section complete ( rust free unit)
drill out the spot welds where the rust unit is attached to the body sub frame
do the same for the new section
position the new section in place against the sub frame and you have 2 options her
either weld the parts back together ( best get a qualified welder to do this)
or drill holes and use grade 8 bolts to bolt the sections together
remember that it is an integral part of the sub-frame so it has to be done properly for safety

Car door is sagging


Take a good look at the door hinges. Often, there will be replaceable bronze bushing inserts in the hinges, and the hinge pins are also prone to wear, especially if the recommended lubrication is not done.

If the bushings and/or pins are not replaceable and the wear is in the hinges, the hinges willl need to be replaced.

Other possible causes are loose hinge mounting fasteners, failure of the door or "A" pillar (for front doors) at the hinge mounting location(s) due to rust or physical damage, and (of course) collision damage to the door or door frame.

I nned the procedure for changing the drivers side fender on my 2000 Silverado 1500.


take the grill out, all the bolts behind the grill. take all the bolts out under the hood, note, the hood hinge is bolted to the fender,. Open the door and take the bolt out there. below the fender, behind the wheel, there is a bolt. take the screws out of the liner and it will come off. it takes about an hour and a half if the bolts are rusted.

Driver side door loose


WEll, usually not a bushing, but there is often lots of wear at the pivot pin. Usually best to replace entire hinge, as teh tolerance goes off when the pin wears...

How do you change the bottom door hinge on a 02 silverado divers side


Before you start if your new hinge isn't painted you should do so to keep it from rusting.
Open the door all the way then you need to support the door so it won't sag or move. Now take the bolts out that hold the hinge, once you have all the bolts out take out the old hinge noting it's position, now insert the new hinge in the same position and replace the bolts, you're done.

Hello, I just bought a 1994 Jeep YJ (Sahara). The doors do not fit right. Is this a common problem? How do i fix? the pins seem to be straight, and the hinges have not moved (no sign of damage or...


Hello, if the doors aren't closing right you can loosen the bolt that the doors latch onto, it is a torx, then move it up or down so that it closes well. Otherwise you can bend the door pins slightly. What can happen is that the body shifts with the removal of the hard top or if someone unbolted the roll cage to put down the front wind screen. Get the doors going good by adjusting the bolt that the door jam latches onto to keep the door closed. Then tighten everything good. It is common that they don't close right. Also, while you're at it, pull up the carpet where the seatbelts are in front and look for rust on the floor. YJ's are know for the seat belt ripping out of a rusted floor and the passengers going through the windshield. But I still love jeeps. Cheers bro.

99 GMC Sierra Fluid Leak Immediately after Getting Oil Change


as an owner of three gmc sierras, i can attest that the brake lines that run along the frame rail under the master cylinder inherently rust away and break. I wouldnt neccesarily think it was tampered with. but do check the condition of all of the lines including the fuel lines for excessive rust.

94 jeep cherokee door troubles


from the late 80's to the 90's jeep cherokees have a known problem with there front door hinges. the first time i seen this on a jeep i thought it was a fluke but now owning a 93 cherokee i am goin through the same problem... most of the time its not the door pins (i am not saying this is not what is wrong with yours, but for the most part it is not the pins). on the inside of the sheet metal, where the door hinges are welded onto, tend to rust/wear out and cause up and down play in the top door hinge. the only way to fix it is to take the door off and reweld a new brace or support underneath the sheet metal, and the weld the door back into place... my jeep is goin threw this process right now... but if you dont fix the door soon it will acually rip the top door hinge out of place, allowing the door to almost touch the ground when opened.
