How do i repair sagging drivers door on 92 ford bronco ?


Car doors in general can wear out hinges / hinge pins due to the weight of the door. You can replace the hinges - but that can be costly. You can try replacing the pins and installing bushing for a fraction of the cost with these or those similar:

My 1993 Ford F250 driver side door will not shut unless I lift up on the door from the outside. Is it the door hinges that need replacing or what?


You may have to replace the hinges but most aftermarket suppliers have pin and bushing kits to repair your existing hinges. A phone call to your auto parts supplier can probably fix you up for a fraction of the price of new hinges.

When you go about fixing the door, an old bumper jack is the best tool to use, if you have one. It will support the end of the door while you remove hinges and make adjustments.Otherwise you will need a helper. BE SURE to mark the position of the hinges before you remove them so you can put them back on easily. If you don't mark them it can take a looooong time to get them adjusted properly. Hope this helps.

My drivers door seems to be sagging from the front pivot point of the hinge which is causing the door to not open well. It has gotten so bad that I have to physically lift the door to open. It no longer...


Sound like what you need, is door hing pins, they go on the hinges, remove hing pine and brass bushing, install new ones, you will need a jack or some thing to hold the door up while you replace the bushing's and pin's.

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 side door problems


Get a set of hinge pins and bushings. There is a tool that you can get at harbor freight or tool king for removing the bushings. I use a floor jack and a 4x4 block of wood to support the door. you will need a spring compressor to remove the door "hold" spring. Once you have that removed, you can use a brass drift or similar rod to tap the pins out. once they are out the door will be resting on the wood. I use heater hose to wedge between the fender and the door to prevent dents and scratches. tap out the bushings. ever so gently tap in the replacements. apply a generous helping of white grease to the bushing and pin. line up the door and insert the pins. you may have to apply an ever so light amount of tapping pressure on the pins to set them final. reinstall the door spring and lube the joints with white grease. be proud of yourself as your just saved a **** load of money.

The drivers side door on my 93 mustang is not fitting right making it hard to close and open the door. I have to lift it to open or close


check the door hinge pins and make sure they are fully seated. Also check the hinge pin bushings - they are made of bronze and if they wear out, the door will droop
