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.
Cheers.

Mitdubishi boot door


you will have to adjust the hinge position to align the latch up on the body. you may have to adjust the latch to allow the lid to close tight.
the hinge bolt holes are bigger than the bolts to allow for corrections.

I have a 1997 ford thunderbird lx and the other day when i went to close the door when i got out it,it wuldnt shut i slammed it a couple times n it still wouldnt shut i really need help because i cant...


Here's something that might help you. Look at the door theres a little hook that grabs the striker on car, hold the door handle "open" and move the hook to the open position try to close the door. That should solve your problem. Hope that helps you.

Driver side door sags.


If your door sags it means the bushings in the door hinge are worn out, but there is a way to adjust it without replacing the hinges if they aren't too bad. If you open your door there are bolts that attach the door hinges to the A-Pillar, most of the time they are accessable from the outside. First get a car jack and position it under middle edge of the open door, put a small piece of wood on the jacking point to protect the door. Loosen the bolts to the hinges and raise the jack so it raises the door up. tighten the bolts on the hinges back up and open and close the door to determine if the door was raised enough to eliminate the sagging.

I replaced the passenger door with a used one and now it wont open and i cant take it off it is stuck howcan i fix it?


Remove door panel and activate lock assy from inside door. When installing, remove post and leave hinge bolts a little loose. Close door and make sure all gaps are even. Install striker post where old one was

I need to remove and replace my drivers side door and do not know how to do so.


go look at the passengers side. take note of the door seam and fender seam width. its about the width of a piece of cardboad. additionally look at the door hinges on the passenger side. it may or may not have washer shims. if they do/dont then just match up with passenger side. it takes 2 people to hang the door. screw in door hinges "finger tight" just to take off the weight of someone holding the door. play with the hinges until you can open/close door without binding or crimping fender at the seam. do not over tighten hinge bolts until the door opens/closes unobstructed. bottomline 2 people needed. slow and tedious job. you may have to add or take shims(washers) out for good fit. note that you may have to add shims to the inner door hinges or to the fender hinges where they meet. hope this is clear instructions.

Driver door on '86 Porche 944 will not close properly


If it's bolted on, check the top hinge bolt for being loose. there is an adjustment slot the bolt can slide in. It's a easy fix. If it's welded on check the top hinge weld behind the fender. Mine came apart at that spot (previos owner rewelded prior to my ownership). You will need to remove the fender to get in there to weld. The hinge is thicker than the sheet metal it's attached to.

Driver's side door not latching / closing


pull the outside handle and unlatch the latching assembly by hand by insertins a screwdriver where the striker would normally be if the door were closed - and pry out.

You can adjust the striker by loosening the bolts, and moving it in toward the cabin.

If the door itself is droopy, adjustments are made by the hinge by loosening the bolts and lifting up or down.

Multiple attempts will be necessary to get it just right.

Dont get frustrated if it doesnt fit properly in the 1st or second attempt.
Good Luck!!
