Question about Chevrolet Blazer
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 washers. As for the tools, you need a spring compressor, jack, hammer, punch. First, open the door all the way and put jack under door. I like to use a 2-by-4 board on top of the jack to help spread the weight of the door out a little. Next, if the door has a wiring harness in the jamb loosen the rubber insulation form both the door and the body. This gives a couple of inches of slack in the wiring. Next use the spring compressor to remove the spring, then use the punch and hammer to drive out the pins. It is very hard to get them to move at first but gets easier as they start to move. I would recommend having a helper to hold the door upright as it will fall when the pin is removed from the hinge. Once the pins are out move the door and jack away from the body, to gain more access 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 always 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 wiring insulation.
Hope this helps
