The doors sag so we bought new pins and bushings for the hinges. we are not sure on how to r&r them. Guru on here gave us an idea but never mentioned removing the fender to do it. we have talked to 2 people in the reapir business that they say you must remove the fender. This guru on here does not take that approach .. what should we do ?

You shouldn't need to remove fender,remove door return springs, have someone hold door in place drive out pins and bushings and reverse the procedure,you may need to borrow a spring compressor to replace those door return springs they're stiff,and it makes it quicker and easier

How do yoiu get the door hindges off of a 89 chevy 1500

To get the door off you have to take out the door pins. The top pin goes in upwards and the bottom pin downward. Make sure you put a jack under the door frame to ease pressure on the pins. Tap pins lightly to remove them. Just like a house door. You will need new bushings. If you find that the bushings are not fitting snug to the hinge, loose, you may need to drill the hole out a bit bigger, and use an over sized pin and bushing to replace it. Good luck, I hope this helps, please rate this solution

Door sags 1996 buick

If you have to lift up on the door and or close it hard--likely a bad hinge --each door has two and you can look into replacing the whole hinge or there are kits with the pin and bushings that can be used to repair a hinge.

Driver door would be most common if car that age and you may just need one of the two hinges replaced/repaired.

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.

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

Repair door sag on a Chevy Suburan

The door hinges have pins in them. The pins have bushings in the hinge. If you go down to your local parts parts store you will be able to purchase them. They are brass colored. You will need to unbolt the doors and use a punch to hammer out the bushings and use a hammer to replace them.

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

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.

Door sag

Hello, you need to replace the hinge pins and bushings. Just take a hammer and knock the hinge pins out and put the new pins with bushings in the hole and tap it into place. Some vehicles have a locking ring on the bottom of the hinge pin just knock it off with your hammer and a screwdriver. They don't have to be replaced but, if you want the dealer sells those too. Good luck and any questions please ask.
