Look at the hinges. If they are bolted and the only problem is they are loose. Try to tighten tem. A tig weld in place will burn odff any paint and if welded poorly you will have alignment problems. The welder will be welding heavy metal to sheet metal The bolts that hold the door on pass through a heavy steel threaded plat behind the sheet metal. Good Luck, Ned

When you open the door it makes a loud popping noise


It is either time to replace the hinges or it is touching the fender as the door opens

Door henge bent


As I understand it the was open at the time and was forced further open towards the front of the car? I think your door pillar was twisted around. In a new car the body shop might cut out the door pillar and weld in another, but I think that is mot the way here.
What you want is for the door to shut evenly in the body all round. There is a small amount of adjustment available in the door hinge attachment bolts, body side and door side, and in the lock striker plate. See here p23

http://www.turboninjas.com/camry/bo.pdf



It may be that a little adjustment in all these would be enough to fix the problem. Try that first.


If not, take the offending door off and look carefully at the A pillar. It does not take much distortion to prevent the door from closing properly. Compare it with the good side, using a long ruler to see where it should line up with the surrounding body. This will give you a target for straightening it.



Then you need a metal bar like this U channel, 2-3 ft long by about 3 in wide.

Hardware shops sell them. Drill holes in one end to match the door hinge bolt holes, and bolt it on to the door pillar, first one hinge then the other. Use it to carefully twist the door pillar back the other way, not too much, using the long ruler as a guide.


This should bring the door pillar back to where the manufacturer's adjustment takes care of the rest.

Toyota drivers door hinge relief mechanism welds have broken. Anyone else have this problem and what did you do. The dealer won't help.


a body shop will need to weld up and possibly build a plate to reinforce the area where the dooor check is attached.

How to fix a door on a 94 jeep cherokee. its broke off the hing on top and idk how to fix other thn weld it but it keeps breaking off help please. thanks.


The right way to fix that really is to weld a steel plate inside the pillar. it is complicated and if you don't know what you are doing you can start a fire.
Likely you could do something similar using tulip head bolts on the exterior part and drawing the original metal into pre-drilled and countersunk holes in the plate. (plate should be no less than 1/4" thick.
Likely that would give you some degree of structural strength. and a solid mount to attach the hinge to.
There must be a design flaw in those door posts as I've seen too many tear off. Most I've seen have been repaired at good body shops and have lasted a long time after the repair.
Good luck with it whichever way you decide upon!

Passenger door dropped on my Daewoo how do i fix


Hi David,

It's either loose hinge(s) or a loose lock.

The lock is easier. Make sure the mechanism within the door is secure. The screws tight. That there is no movement of the latch assembly.

Next the hinges:
With the door fully open, position yourself so you can observe the hinges while lifting the door. It will be easier with a helper.

You are looking for movement at the mounting points of either hinge. Check mounting bolts and tighten where necessary.

Comment me back with the results.

Best regards,
Mike

Are the hinges coming loose from the body? Remove the front fender to get at the body support area for the door.

1995 Cherokee Country driver's side door weld breaks, also ALB


Weld broke twice likely because job wasn't done well. Shop didn't reenforce post when making repair. I also recommend painting over weld to cover any newly exposed metal after repaired. Don't know of any recalls...you can check nat highway traffic safety board. Sounds like your brakes would work better with abs disconnected (we all drove with no abs for how many years??) I'd do this 'till I found a good cure. On the hose thing... Pull the hose back into the cavity on both door and body. Splice with a longer piece than you need and leave the spliced ends inside the cavities, not in the "flex" area between the door & body. Good luck!

Door


If you need to get a door Id suggest trying a local wrecking yard. If you can try to get the whole hinge assembly and latch as it sounds like there is a possibility that the hinge on your current door is worn out or the latch mechanism is worn. If you are lucky you may even get one that is the same color as your current vehilce color.

I would say that you can most likely weld the torn metal around the latch. Be sure to protect or remove all wireing, upolstery and any thing else that may melt, burn or catch fire due to high tempatures. I would suggest TIG welding if you know someone or a shop that can do it but you are more likely to find a MIG welder which should do a decent job as well.
