The repair kit that you purchase should have recommended steps for replacement. With the kit that I purchased, I had to grind the bottom of the upper & lower pins off. Since this was a quick fix, my brother assisted by holding the door steady on the blocks that we set the door on. I removed the old pins. The new pins were threaded and were pulled into place as the retaining nuts were tightened. We set the door back in place and were done. I purchased the pin kits from my buddy at a local body shop.

How do i repair sagging drivers door on 92 ford bronco ?


Car doors in general can wear out hinges / hinge pins due to the weight of the door. You can replace the hinges - but that can be costly. You can try replacing the pins and installing bushing for a fraction of the cost with these or those similar:

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.

    Driver door has dropped about 1/2". I see a torx


    Before attempting to adjust the door, you need to check the wear on the hinge pins. Open the door fully and look at the middle of the hinge. See the pin there? Lift up on the latch side of the door as you watch the hinge pin. If you see the hinge moving around the pin or see the pin shifting back and forth then the metal grommet the pin goes through is worn and needs replacing. Motormite makes a replacement pin set that comes with new grommets ( or bushings to some). It's not so hard to change, but it can be a little tricky. Jack up the door to relieve the pressure on the pin.Start with the top pin. Watch the pin as you jack and keep going until the pin is in the middle of the movement range. Tap the old pin out and then inspect the grommet to see if it's worn past the outer edge of the metal. If it is worn past the edge then you'll need to replace that hinge. Otherwise, you can use that old pin to tap out the old grommet, and replace with the new one, then the new pin. slowly release the pressure on the jack and watch the new pin for excessive movement, then do the bottom pin and grommet.. Test door swing and alignment. If the door still hits low on the catch post, loosen those torq bolts after lifting the door slightly and now lift the door the distance it was low plus 1/8 inch. retighten torq bolts and release jack, then retest the door alignment to the catch post. Don't let the door strike the catch post hard - just let it slowly come into contact as you watch for alignment. Repeat procedure until door lines up centered on taht catch post.
    Good luck!!

    How do you replace the drivers door hinge?


    The hingepin is available in some of the help kits at the parts store. If you are just trying to make the door tight again there is no reason to unbolt the hinge. You just grind or chisel the top shoulder of the pin away and then punch the old pin through the bottom.

    Put the new pin through the hinge and bend a shoulder on the new pin. Some may even use a nut with threads.

    To install the pin or replace the hinge you should open the door and try to brace the bottom of the door with a bucket or books or anything where you can keep the door from changing position. Once braced, a hinge will just unbolt and you can swap it with the new part. Do one hinge at a time if you have 2 on a door.

    Some local auto parts have replacement door/hinge pin-kits for Ford products. (If not order from your local Ford dealer) The pins may need heated with a torch and driven out with a long spline pin punch. You might want to get a mechanic to do this for you.
