How do i remove the driver side door on an 02 cavalier, 2 door? what tools do i need?

Hi Sarah:
When you open and close the door you will see that it swings on hinges.
If you look at the hinges you will see that they are attached to the car and the door with bolts.
Swing the door open and place blocks under it (or floor jacks) to support it, then undo the hinge bolts. Do the botttom hinge first.
You'll also probably have to disconnect some wires if there are any electricals.
Doors can be heavy so don't drop it.
Also, don't drive the vehicle without having a drivers door installed.

It may have a switch which engages when the door is fully open, if the switch is bad then the door would continue to try to open (too far)

Car door got hit while open and wont close how do i fix it

The problem sounds like the hinge pin and bushings Its a heavy door and the bushings ware out see how far you can move the door up and down with it open if more then 1/2 of an inch this it the problen .You can get the pin s and bushings at any auto store for about 10 dollars usely the upper is the one . The pin is not hard to do its putting the damping spring back in that is problematic although the door will open and close with out it you just need to be careful about it swing open to fast the spring stops that from happening and you need a speical tool to install the spring

I have a 2004 Accord and the passenger door swings open and closed very freely. It does not catch even on a level surface and the door will swing closed.

the "door check" is either broken or disconnected, compare it with the left door and check that strap between the hinges.

Driver side front door makes a strong spring side when opening and closing. It seems to be in the door stop mechanism but that has been replaced and the noise continues.

Try spraying your door hinges and springs with WD-40 lubricant and then swing door back and forth several times until noise hopefully disappears. Might have to spray more than once. Best wishes!
