SOURCE: driver's door hinge

You will have to Mcgyver it....You can cut the pin out but usually anything u put in there wil not last long. Also usually the pin goes and the hinge holes get oblonged making it impossibble too repair. I used to cut the hinge out Cause its welded to the frame on most and weld on a new one....

You will need to remove the door panel to gain access to the handle. Roll the window up or down as needed to get to the nuts that attach the handle to the door. You will also need to remove a rod the goes to the door lock. You will see the rod after the door panel is removed. Good luck.

Most likely the hinge is not bad, but the hinge pin bushings are bad. You can buy the hinge pins and the bushings at your local auto parts store. They come in a kit. Hope this info is helpful.

How do I replace the long screw that holds the door up on the door hinges,on a '97 gmc Sonoma?


I have done a 100 of these.

The hardest part is going to be to reinstall the spring on the lower hinge arm. this is not a screw but rather a pin.
There are two hinges that hold the door to body.
when the upper and lower pins are removed the door will come away from body, it is important that before you remove the pins you take a look at the hinges.
Pay close att. to the way the hinges sit inside each other and the way the pins go in. see if they go from top to bottom or from bottom to top. also note where the copper bushings sit in hinges. each hinge has one pin and two copper bushings top go into hinge.
Over time the pins and bushings wear out ,making door hard to open and close. When the pins and bushings get so bad that the bushing is worn out and then the pins are now wearing into the hinge hole itself then this get tricky. if hinge hole is egg shaped the new bushings will not last. the door will hang again in a few weeks. this is where is get costly, the hinges now need replacing. i have gotten good at welding the holes and filing them back to shape but this takes skill or hole will be wrong and bushing will not fit or line up.

Here is a youtube video to help you.
Take note. put jack stands under door with cloth to avoid scratching door.this is to hold door when pins are removed. have somone help you, they will hold door on stands. the wires will still run through door, pull door away from body a little to allow room to work.remove the spring, it will fall out as you remove pins, remove old bushings, clean hinge area and holes,next install new bushings, apply lube to holes for pins and on bushings, slide door back on frame hinges and install pins, next slide lock washers on pins to hold pins. last is the spring. you will need a spring tool, you may rent one at auto parts store. hope this helps good day.

Tip

Fix Anything, House doors hinges, car door hinges ETC...


If you work around the house and around cars a lot like i do, next time you find a squeaky door, leave the WD-40 alone, go for the petroleum jelly instead, like vasoline. Remove one hingpin at a time, if they are eaisily removed and clean it, Then lightly coat it with the petroleum jelly, and reinstall. Move on and do the next one. If the pin can't be removed, brush it on right at the bushing or hinge split. It lasts a heck of a lot longer than oil and does not run. I did one of my most used doors, in my home, a few years ago. The thing is still as silent as a church mouse. My wife hates it, because she always thinks i am sneaking up on her. One of these days i will do the rest. I gave my gmc pickup door hinges the same treatment. It has 207,000 miles still on the original door hinge pins with very little wear.Good Luck. Bob.

1995 GMC pickup. Cold AC will blow through all settings (defrost, front vents and flloor) but warm air will not come out the defrost. You can hear something click in the dash that you assume is some kind...


good work, the clicking noise you hear is the blend door trying to move. this door is what controls the temp. the most common reason is the actuator motor is bad but sometimes the door hinge breaks, this hinge slides into actuator and is used to move the door. you will need to locate it on the heater box by locating the noise and then remove the actuator and see if the hinge is broken, i will try to enclose some picture to help you. good day, hope this helps.johnjohn2_142.jpgjohnjohn2_160.gif

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.

    My drivers side door drops every time I open my door. Is it because of the door hinge or do I need to replace the door pins?


    the hinge pins rides on brass bushings. if the door does not latch replace the pin and bushings with oversized ones available at Chevrolet parts department
    you will need a sring compressor which is available at Auto Zone

    Driver door will not close properly>


    These things can be a pain, cause I have one... Have you adjusted the striker mechanism? Your adjustments are basically the striker and the door hinges. It is possible that you have worn door hinge pin(s). You may need to adjust the hinges. Rick

    Doors on my truck


    You probably need new door hinges. Open the door, lift up on the door while watching the hinges, you should not see any movement at the hinge location. If there is play there, replace the hinges. To remove door hinges, place a floor jack under the door for support while u remove hinges. There should be some adjustment at the hinges, and door latch to fine tune the fit and how it closes. Good luck, let me know how u make out.

    90 chev truck


    There is no door adjustment usually needed. On these trucks the hinge pin bushings wear out. open your door slightly, then try picking up on it by grabbing the end of the door and pulling up. if you are able to move it up and down, you need new hing pins and bushings. they are about 8 bucks each (2 per door) and are found at your parts store in the Help! section of hardware. good Luck.
