Tip

Replacing door or hinges on a Ford Dodge Chevy Truck w/o removing the fender...


If replacing the hinges on a truck you always have a pain of a time re aligning the door. Unbolt the door/hinge bolts directly on the inside of the door first (not behind the fenders). The use a pencil to mark the outer edges of the actual hinges for alingment. This will allow you to set the new hinges in the exact same place as the original ones. When they are on start the 4 door bolts and tighten the very top and very bottom hinge (check for alingment). If set tighten the last two bolts or adjust accordingly. This way yo only have to do minor adjustment on the rear of the door bolts versus all bolts and saved time by removing the fenders to adjust the hinge/body bolts..

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.

The drivers door hinge pins are loose allow the


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.

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.

Door hinge


The door is bolted to the hinges, work out which hinge has most movement in its hinge (Top or lower), this one will need to be moved forward or back to compensate for wear in hinge.
Also take note of door gap along fender (When door is closed) to
prevent it damaging paintwork.
Hope this helps, MMP
