Can I put the door hinge pins in upside down I have had to replace these pins multiple times the clip does not hold it for very long

Are you replacing the bushings when you replace the pins? The fit should not be so loose that your pin just falls out.

How to remove door bushings

The only door bushings I am aware of are the ones on the hinge pins. Correct? If not, please clarify what you mean.
New pins come with new bushings, and the hinges are welded on so the pins are pretty much the only items replaceable. Not a fun job - because of the door stop springs you will need a spring compressor, and you will also need a special tool to drive out the old pins. However, both are available from a parts store or Amazon.
Just open the door and support it from the bottom, and then go for it, one pin at a time - for the upper pin, compress and remove the small spring, drive out the old pin, drive in the new pin and put the spring back. No spring on the bottom hinge - just replace the pin.

Replace door hinge bushings on a Venture Van

a lot of times when the hinges are worn out, the easiest thing is to go to a salvage yard and get different ones,its sometimes faster to change them entirely than to take them apart..sometimes the actual hinge pins arent able to be serviced so this is a better option..good luck..

Drivers door pin and bushings need replaced again.I am looking for after market repair kit not the Dorman kit that was rpreviously installed .

Chevy blazers are ******* bushings. You can get bushings at any autoparts store. The key to keepinng them in good shape is lubrication.

Car door is sagging

Take a good look at the door hinges. Often, there will be replaceable bronze bushing inserts in the hinges, and the hinge pins are also prone to wear, especially if the recommended lubrication is not done.

If the bushings and/or pins are not replaceable and the wear is in the hinges, the hinges willl need to be replaced.

Other possible causes are loose hinge mounting fasteners, failure of the door or "A" pillar (for front doors) at the hinge mounting location(s) due to rust or physical damage, and (of course) collision damage to the door or door frame.

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.

Door won't shut completely. Inside panel catches on bottom of interior almost tearing off panel. How do I replace bushings on door hinge

You can buy a hinge repair kit at most good auto parts stores.

You will have to support the door while open, and remove the pin from the bad hinge. Most kits then require you drill a hole where the pin was and press in a bushing. Reinsert the pin (or the new pin if your kit came with it) and remove whatever was supporting your door.

This can be done with one person if you're careful, but it's easier if you have a helper to keep control of the door.

You can also remove the hinge completely on certain vehicles, allowing to repair the hinge at a workbench.

My doors have fallin and now i have to lift6 up on the door with the window down to close it

Sounds like the door hinges are worn. Determine if it is the hinges or the hinge pin that is worn. It it is only the pins, which is unlikely, you can just replace these, if it is the hinges, the complete hinges will have to be replaced.

Door hinge has come loose from body

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.
