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.

Here is the repair procedure straight from Ford manual, but it doesnt give any information about access problems, I will ask a coworker and see if he knows:

  1. Mark the location of the front door upper hinge (22800) or lower door hinge on the front door or rear door and body.
  1. Remove the door hinge-to-body retaining bolts.
  1. Remove the door hinge-to-door retaining bolts. Remove front door upper hinge or lower door hinge.
  1. To install, position the front door upper hinge or lower door hinge to the front door or rear door and body. Install retaining bolts.

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.

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.

    Door does not shut tight--bad latch???


    usually the door latch will go bad when the door hinge bushings are very worn. Inspect the door hinge by holding the door a grab the outside door handle and the door shell firmly. Now lift the door up vertically and see if there is any play in the hinges. If the slightest movement is found replace the door hinge pins and bushings. your door latch may work great again If not replace that too

    You probably need new door hinges. Open the door, lift up on the door while watching the hinges, you should not see any movement at the hinge location. If there is play there, replace the hinges. To remove door hinges, place a floor jack under the door for support while u remove hinges. There should be some adjustment at the hinges, and door latch to fine tune the fit and how it closes. Good luck, let me know how u make out.
