99 Chevy Silverado door pins how to change hinges


If the hinges are bolted they can be released from the bodywork and door by removing the bolts although on many models accessing the bolts can be a very difficult task.

In the case of welded hinges the door must be removed by removing the hinge pins. There is then a lot of careful grinding and cutting to remove the hinge parts from the door and the bodywork and new hinges welded into place.

In the case of a car regularly maintained, including oiling the hinges, removing the hinge pins with a dedicated service tool is relatively easy but can be extremely difficult without the service tool. Cars that have not received a high level of maintenance throughout it's life hinge pins can be extremely difficult to remove needing the application of heat, lots of hammering and repainting afterwards.

How can i replace the hood lift supprt on a 1998 ford explorer?


This shows you how to take the hood off, the hinges, I am not sure how to replace those since my online resources doesn't cover that portion of body work. The diagram seems to show that the hinge goes into the firewall, so if you want you might have to cut into the firewall, but this is more of a salvage yard procedure.

I would look at the hood lift support more closely to see if you can indeed replace it.

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION Fig. 1: Exploded view of the hood-to-hinge mounting 85550005.gif
NOTE: It is highly recommended that you have at least one assistant helping during this operation.
  1. Open the hood.
  2. Matchmark the hood-to-hinge position.
  3. Disconnect any electrical wire harness plugs.
  4. Have you're assistant(s) support the weight of the hood.
  5. Remove the hood-to-hinge bolts and lift the hood off of the hinges.
  6. Installation is the reverse of the removal. Loosely install the hood and align the matchmarks. Tighten the bolts securely. Before removing the hood, matchmark the hood hinge to the hood 89680p03.jpg
    If equipped, disconnect the hood light wire harness plug . . . 89680p04.jpg

2002 honda odyssey power sliding door roller replacement. Is this a hard job to do?


Not very difficult if like my '99. Be sure to purchase the correct hinge for "power" door. Here are the steps:
  • Remove rear tail light (2 screws and pull from socket)
  • Remove two screws from rear of hinge cover panel
  • Remove bolt from front of hinge cover panel
  • Open door around one foot and rest the back end on something about the same height
  • Remove the three bolts from the hinge connecting it to the door
  • Loosen slack on cable by unbolting pulley under inside rear panel (tire tool storage on driver side)
  • Slide broken hinge out back of rail
  • Replace new hinge and put all back together
I don't know if there is a simpler way to loosen the slack on the cable, but this is how I did mine.
Hope this helps.

1996 cav. 2.2 engine swap


It can be done either way.It is likely less work to remove it from the top,and leave the transmission in the car.Remove the a/c compressor while leaving the lines hooked up so you don't lose the charge on the system.Disconnect the trans bellhousing bolts and torque convertor bolts,support the trans from below with a floor jack while hoisting the engine up out of the bay.Unless the hood opens wide enough,the hood will have to be removed to accomodate the height of the lifting crane.Mark and index all wires and connectors as to what they go to with masking tape and a pen or marker.Before removing the hood,scribe around the hood hinges to give a good outline so that the hood is bolted back exactly as it was in relation to the hinges,otherwise the panels won't line up properly,hood to fender gap,hood to door gap,etc.
