Quite often you can open the door and loosen off the bottom hinge bolts where they attach to the door and insert chassis alignment shims between the door and the hinge plate. This will have the effect of raising the raising the back of the door up a little. You'll have to have someone lift the door while you insert the shims after you have loosened the bolts. Any shop that does wheel alignments should be willing to give you a couple small chassis shims.

SOURCE: 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...

Just add flat washers to the bottom hinge (between door and hinge). These hinge pins are not replaceable and they sell you the whole hinge.

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.

My doors have fallin and now i have to lift6 up on the door with the window down to close it

Sounds like the door hinges are worn. Determine if it is the hinges or the hinge pin that is worn. It it is only the pins, which is unlikely, you can just replace these, if it is the hinges, the complete hinges will have to be replaced.

The first thing you need to do is to check the hinge pin bushings to see how worn they are. S-10s/Jimmys are notoriously bad on hinge pin bushings and hinges, and after a while, will droop slightly. The top pins are usually the worst. Look at where the pins go through the hinge. Can you see a cracked/worn/missing/misshapen bushing in there? These usually only lasted a couple of years, so likely it is so. The next thing to look for, is if the hole is oblong or egg-shaped or not. If it is, you're looking at some welding work on the hinge, or replacement. You may be able to get away with using a putty like qwik-steel in conjunction with new bushings to fix it if you want to stay on the cheap. New bushing/pin kits are available from most auto parts stores, and normally cost in the neighborhood of 7-10 dollars. The pins are fairly easy to remove and replace, with the hinge spring being the most difficult part of it. You can leave it out if you wish, but to reinstall it requires a special tool(another $8) to compress it and get it back where it needs to be. To remove the hinge pins, use a brass punch and a hammer, and tap down on the end of the pin until it is flush with the top bushing. Do the same for the bottom one(I think you tap up on that one if I remember correctly, but it will be obvious). You will then want a partner and something to support the door on when it comes loose. Lift on the door, while prying the pin the rest of the way out with whatever makes you comfortable. A pair of needle-nosed vise grips works perfectly for this. The pins will come out, and you pull the door away slightly, have your partner hold it, while you install the new bushings. Once the new bushings are in place, you can reinstall the door. I like to put the pins in upside down, so I know they won't work their way out while in use, but it's entirely up to you. One note of caution. When tapping out the top pin, your hammer will be dangerously close to your windshield. Be accurate with your hammer, or your hinge pins will cost you another $180 with the cost of a new windshield.

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 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 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

Driver door not properly mountain or perhaps needs seals what is it?

Does the door have trouble closing? Check the door hinges first. It may not be aligned properly. You may want to have the door evaluated at your local body shop. Good luck!!!

1996 lincoln door hinge adjust

Which door is it ? If it is a front door, then it may be the hinge pin bushing that needs replacing. These can be bought at any auto parts store. Get the pin and bushing set because the hinge pin will need to be ground off to remove it. Press the new bushings in with pliers and insert the new pin from the top
