Hi, find a suitable BOLT with ny-lock NUT. use a ROLL PIN (may need to drill-out to fit, needs to be tight, and longer then the hinge). these high tension roll pins come in all sizes. may get one in your local HARDWARE store. if not your local garage should have them.
failing this drill to very near size and fit (high tension bolt and locknut). sorry i can do more. gerry

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.

Drivers door hinge is coming apart. Hinge pin is worn out

The pins and bushings are available at most auto parts stores. You can even get oversize bushings if the hole is worn. Usually about $20 for a set. They can also be got at the dealer. Hope thishelps.

The first thing you need to do is to check the hinge pin bushings to see how worn they are. S-10s/Jimmys are notoriously bad on hinge pin bushings and hinges, and after a while, will droop slightly. The top pins are usually the worst. Look at where the pins go through the hinge. Can you see a cracked/worn/missing/misshapen bushing in there? These usually only lasted a couple of years, so likely it is so. The next thing to look for, is if the hole is oblong or egg-shaped or not. If it is, you're looking at some welding work on the hinge, or replacement. You may be able to get away with using a putty like qwik-steel in conjunction with new bushings to fix it if you want to stay on the cheap. New bushing/pin kits are available from most auto parts stores, and normally cost in the neighborhood of 7-10 dollars. The pins are fairly easy to remove and replace, with the hinge spring being the most difficult part of it. You can leave it out if you wish, but to reinstall it requires a special tool(another $8) to compress it and get it back where it needs to be. To remove the hinge pins, use a brass punch and a hammer, and tap down on the end of the pin until it is flush with the top bushing. Do the same for the bottom one(I think you tap up on that one if I remember correctly, but it will be obvious). You will then want a partner and something to support the door on when it comes loose. Lift on the door, while prying the pin the rest of the way out with whatever makes you comfortable. A pair of needle-nosed vise grips works perfectly for this. The pins will come out, and you pull the door away slightly, have your partner hold it, while you install the new bushings. Once the new bushings are in place, you can reinstall the door. I like to put the pins in upside down, so I know they won't work their way out while in use, but it's entirely up to you. One note of caution. When tapping out the top pin, your hammer will be dangerously close to your windshield. Be accurate with your hammer, or your hinge pins will cost you another $180 with the cost of a new windshield.

How do i install hinge pins on a 1994 chevy s10?

Pretty basic. Just hold your door up with a floor jack or block of wood, bang the pins up, replace the bushings, and install the bushings and pins. Do one at a time.

1996 lincoln door hinge adjust

Which door is it ? If it is a front door, then it may be the hinge pin bushing that needs replacing. These can be bought at any auto parts store. Get the pin and bushing set because the hinge pin will need to be ground off to remove it. Press the new bushings in with pliers and insert the new pin from the top
