1A Auto Parts: @Pistol Pete Depending on how the door hinge is made, you may be able to
apply this procedure to your vehicle. 1aauto.com 866-403-3393
DeepOne: so its just those hindges that makes my door close so poorly? Is there any
other reason? Maybe I need to adjust the door? What do you think? thank
Ryan Dibble: Workin on a 91 dodge w250 with this problem on the drivers side, Probably
going to be a little harder because it's more hidden
John Pollman: I just did the new hinge pins and bushings on my 2003 GMC Sonoma SLS. It
The only part of the job that was concerning me was the spring. I went to
Harbor Freight, and for about $5 I bought a GM door spring removal tool
(I've also seen them at auto parts stores for about $7) It made the whole
job very easy. I opened the tool and pushed it into the spring. Then tapped
it with a hammer until it stopped. Then just torqued down the screw and the
spring came right out. It stayed there while I replaced the pins and
bushings. When I was ready, I put the spring back in place and loosened the
bolt on the tool and the spring went right back into place very easily the
FIRST time I tried it. The tool made the job MUCH easier.
Ross Munn: I like your video good detail and instruction. I've got to removed my
passenger door on my '96 CK1500, cause I ran into a small post in a parking
lot. Boy, that's a downer. Thanks for the info. I'll be having this with
me when doing the job!!!
Cameron Morris: Hey I just got a new cab for my truck the bushings on the lower hinge
appear almost if there one with the bracket any tips seems like there still
the factory ones. I can't get it to budge and it's not even breaking apart
and falling out.
Pistol Pete Ammo: What about a 2006 GMC Sierra ? Similar install? The door is hanging
MrShanewhite: Aloha ., i own a 96' Toyota T100 ., i can't find pins and bushings anywhere
except from Servco Toyota @ $79.89 each ! = whole assembly hinge and all
..for 1 .
for the proper fit can you direct me to someone who mite ?
i would be most appreciative . Mahalo
iceman54814: I have a 2000 Silverado 1500 extended cab, with the 2 suicide style doors
on the back. My problem is the wind noise, I've seen forums saying that
it's the weather stripping, however it seems to me that the front driver
door doesn't shut tight, the top of the door seems to be away from the
strip. Are there any ways to fix this problem?
shrtbxman: So I am having an issue. I have the pins and old bushings out but my lower
bushings go in the door side. The bushings seem to be too big in both of
the completely separate kits I have purchased. Pin seems to be the same
size but the bushing o.d. is too large. Any ideas?
Alec Conrad: No retainer ring on my 95 K1500, Pin was sledged over by chisel and had to
be removed with a die grinder.
wardlawsg1: Hi i have a 2003 Chevy blazer and this morning my spring popped out this
morning and now the door is off track and the guy was like they need to
re-weld the door hinges instead of just replacing the pins and bushings. I
just want to know is this something that needs to be done or i can i just
replace the pins and bushings myself and re-install the spring.
BigOlBaddie: Do u have a video showing us how 2 replace a whole door? Great vids by the
Darren Ward: how do you get the spring back in?? Great video's.
quillfam: the dealer sold me the pins and bushings but the bushing seems too big to
fit in the hole. i hit them pretty hard and only ruined the bushings. is
mercadog100: Nice. !! Betting on a extencion. Use a long chisil
Broke Gunner: how much different is process for and 95 f150?
1A Auto Parts: We currently do not have an auto repair video that shows this particular
repair. You may be able to unbolt the hinges, of if the hinges are welded,
you may need to remove the door pins like this video shows. 1aauto.com
1A Auto Parts: You may be able to apply some of the basics shown in this video to your
Russ VerCruysse: thank you for sharing this video, it's always better to see how to do
something rather than reading it
Steve Pierce: The holes in my hinges are elongated very badly. Any fix for this? Thanks.
auxmike: Do you have a video like this for ford mustangs?
Steve Tofi: Thank you so much for this helpful video ,i have a prob. with my 1993
Jimmy's front door.'
JJ Transman: Hi Mike, Great video! Thanks. But I was wondering about something that goes
hand in hand with the hinge repair and that's' the door latch. I have to
repair the hinge on my 99' Suburban but the striker and latch are damaged
as well. The striker is easy enough but can't find the the equivalent GM
16631627 part in aftermarket anywhere. Does 1AAuto carry this part??? Hope
you can help!
1A Auto Parts: @ashclan14 Glad to be of such a help
Craig Kelly: Great Video!! I did this job this afternoon in about an hour by myself. I
just used a large air car lift jack that has two pedestals rather than one,
and I duct taped a soccer ball to the jack to fill the gap between it and
the door, and then cargo strapped the jack to the door... the only problem
I had was that dang spring!... after the 6th attempt of the evening... I
decided to tackle it tomorrow morning when I'm fresh. Even as an
experienced mechanic, I would have not done this without this.
rosbrughjb: I bought the parts from you all through your website and will install this
Nashville Ear: Thanks guys! I have to replace a door on my daughters car. I found a used
door on ebay, so I will do what you guys did and put on the new door with a
new set of pins. Can I buy new pins and bushings on the internet? You have
made my day guys! Thanks again!
Bruce Schreiner: I successfully changed the bushings on the passenger side. The driver side
is a little different. The top hinge was fine the lower hinge appears to be
different. The lower hinge bushings are in the door side of the hinge and
are not brass, they appear to be steel with a brass insert. The brass
bushings will not fit in the holes they are to small. I started to just
drimmel them out but thought I should ask first. Is there a different type
of bushing that I need? Why are the in the door hinge
donna hysmith: if you dont have a helper would it be better to just take the door off?
1A Auto Parts: We currently do not have an auto repair video of that particular repair.
We'll keep this request in mind in the event that we need to make this
repair in the future.
Clarence miller: This video was a great help. ... thanks. .
1A Auto Parts: @doubleblackD This video will show you how to install the spring back into
your door. youtube.com/user/1aauto?feature=mhee#p/search/1/PMFzPx9t8eg
i13w13d: would you be able to make a video like this but for a sunfire or is it the
Redsox3600: Do you know how much the typical dealer would do this job for?
blooit: good stuff. My local mechanic wanted $600 per door. Thanks for saving me
$1000. You guys rock!
1A Auto Parts: You may need to replace or repair the hinge if that's the case.
1A Auto Parts: Its the same concept but this video is for the older models.
ninjakittyboom: I know absolutely nothing about cars, and your video helped me change out
my pins and bushings without many problems. Apparently the right tools
help, which I don't have, but it all worked out in the end. Thanks for the
cov01crew: I followed this procedure step-by-step on my 1994 Chevy Silverado-style
Suburban. It worked PERFECTLY! I really appreciated the zip-tie spring
compressing trick. My formerly badly sagging drivers side door now closes
and latches like a dream. Fantastic. THANK YOU!!!
NZmxers: Hi, great video we are about to install new hinge pins to our 1996 jeep and
this has really helped us understand what we need to do and what to look
out for when removing the old ones so we get it right. So Thanks!
drwombat: Hi please link the Video Reply that shows how to install the spring, I did
not see it linked in the section below video info where you mentioned it
would be in the video.
g6qwerty: Where the video on how to install the spring? I don't' see any replay
798063p: Thank you! I have to replace mine on a 1997 Grand Marquis. Pretty much the
same procedures I suppose!!!. Great video!!!
jitjoseph: I just bought a door handle from you guys!
Matt Keiper: Thanks! I feel like I can do this, where do I find the spring video?
teslanik: thank you for an informative video! I do have one question though. My door
sags so bad you can barely close it. Also, the spring itself came out and
the pin the spring rests against is bent. If I just change the pins and
leave the spring out, will this solve my door closing issues?
1A Auto Parts: It all ranges because different dealers have different labor rates. I would
try finding out what the hour rating is on this and then find the dealer
with the best labor charge.
1A Auto Parts: It really helps to have someone help you with this job as the door can be
heavy and a little awkward to work with sometimes.
1A Auto Parts: We currently do not have one for that particular application. We'll keep
this in mind in the event that this repair needs to be done in the future.
