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 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 1993 Ford F250 driver side door will not shut unless I lift up on the door from the outside. Is it the door hinges that need replacing or what?


You may have to replace the hinges but most aftermarket suppliers have pin and bushing kits to repair your existing hinges. A phone call to your auto parts supplier can probably fix you up for a fraction of the price of new hinges.

When you go about fixing the door, an old bumper jack is the best tool to use, if you have one. It will support the end of the door while you remove hinges and make adjustments.Otherwise you will need a helper. BE SURE to mark the position of the hinges before you remove them so you can put them back on easily. If you don't mark them it can take a looooong time to get them adjusted properly. Hope this helps.

Need instructions on replacing drivers side door hinge pins and bushings


  • 1. Place masking tape on the inside edges of the door, on both the inside and outside of the door. 2. Remove the door spring by using a door spring removal tool. Insert the tool into the door spring, turn the knob with a screwdriver to compress the spring, then pull out the tool. 3. Set a 5-gallon bucket under the door. This will help support the weight of the door. 4.Place a nail punch under the hinge pin, and strike it with a hammer. Repeat this until the hinge pin begins to come out of the hinge. 5.Place the end of a flat-head screwdriver under the top of the hinge pin, then strike the screwdriver with the hammer to force the hinge pin out of the hinge. 6. Place the bushing on top of the new door hinge pin, and tap it into place with the hammer. 7. Insert the new hinge pin into the hinge. Tap on the hinge pin with the hammer and nail punch to force the pin into the hinge. 8. Insert the hinge spring back into the door, and release the tension on the spring removal tool. 9. Spray the door hinge with a lubricating spray or apply grease.

    I know there are a few directions but it is fairly easy to do. If you have access to an air hammer and a compressor you can use this in place of a manual hammer to make the process a bit easier.

    Hope this helps.

    How to change door hinge pins


    Most can be driven out with a drift pin from the bottom. After you remove them, check the holes in the hinges for wear...there are bushing kits available if they are worn. Have someone support the door during removal. best is also to have a floor jack under the edge of the door (protected with a piece of rug etc). for added support and control.

    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

    I have sagging fron doors how do i fix this, is it just the pins?


    this is not easy. You have to replace the guide bushings on the hinges which involves removing the door from vehicle. You also have to buy the tool that compresses the spring in the door jamb. My advice, pay the money to a shop, it is well worth it.

    You just need to use a small drift pin punch to push the door pins out. Use a small drift pin punch and a small hammer to drive the pin up and out from the bottom. It is just stuck in the hole.
