Sounds like a door pin to me. If this is the case easiest way to do this is by a couple new ones.Have a buddy come over and help you. First open up the door and have your buddy hold it.

Next using a hammer and a small punch (or something similar) tap any remaining pins out (top one has to be pushed from the top down, bottom from the bottom up)

Then pull the door out enough that the hinges are apart and hammer out all the old bushings.

Then re-install in reverse order. I usually just use a pair of pliers and press in new bushings, get the door in place and tap in the pins (this time upper pin goes in from the bottom, bottom pin goes in from the top.

This is a pretty common thing since the top pin goes in from the bottom, when the bushings start to wear they no longer fit snug on the pin and the pin slides out.

Hope this helped you, let me know if this was in fact your problem, and please don't forget to rate this answer.

Passenger door is offset, thus pushing the front fender in when the door is opened. What do I need to replace? The door hinge? I'm trying to troubleshoot and help my son fix all the issues with his car.

The problem is ur DOOR HiNGE BUSHiNG! Test ur DOOR if it moves by lifting up, if it moves look at how the hinge plays, the BOLTS might only be loose and needs tightening! Replacing the HiNGE BUSHiNG, pull out the PiN, that holds the hinge from the door to the body panel. Look at the center hole, notice a copper/brass bushing, take it off and replace w/ new one! U need 4 pcs. for each door! Hope that might help u out! Taah!

V70 door hinge problem. the door opening mechanism is loose on the car body. is there any way of tightening this

No way to tighten What actually has happened is the body is broken loose where the arm attaches. This is a known problem with the 850 and the S/V 70 series volvo until 2001. The only repair is to have it welded.

Passenger door dropped on my Daewoo how do i fix

Hi David,

It's either loose hinge(s) or a loose lock.

The lock is easier. Make sure the mechanism within the door is secure. The screws tight. That there is no movement of the latch assembly.

Next the hinges:
With the door fully open, position yourself so you can observe the hinges while lifting the door. It will be easier with a helper.

You are looking for movement at the mounting points of either hinge. Check mounting bolts and tighten where necessary.

Comment me back with the results.

Best regards,

Open door position hold latch snaps real loud opening and closing the door

The hinge has most likely broken loose from the door frame. Look at the main body where the slider bar attaches to the body from the door. It is common for the hinge to break loose. It will need to be spot welded back into place to stop the clicking noise. Usualy two clicks when the door opens and then when it closes.
