Door problems.

So its always popped when i open it... i let it go for too long obviously.

I figured it was a pin, so i went and bought them today, took the door off, started replacing pins, then noticed that the weld is shot on the bottom hinge.

How do I go about getting this fixed? Just reweld it? What if it isnt lined up correctly? JB Weld it and tinker until its straight and then weld it once i know its in position?

Hope someone can chime in.

Thanks.

I'm going to subscribe to this because ''yes'' mine does it also..
I've been to lazy to ask how to fix them. I've read the repairs years ago .. and I think I've seen it done in one of the body shops I called on years ago .
.....
... I'm thinking that the door it's self breaks and then flexes up and down .. But I kind of think mine is in the hinge or bushing & pins.

I just got a price quote to have this done at a local body shop. Just over a $100.00 to re-bush both hinges.

Cool thanks. I was going to try some job weld but don't know if it would be enough to support the pressure in opening and closing.

Awesome, and that worked good I assume? Plenty of clearance with the door panel off to do this as well?

yeah it works great and there's lots of room behind the pannel, however you will need to do this with the door off because you have to drill from the outside going in.

Did anyone have trouble aligning the door after taking it off to re-bush the hinge pins? How did you do it?

no alignment necessary remove the 4 bolts facing back and replace the pins, bolt right on. If you have to align the door the fender/s have to come off so you can access the rear part of the hinges.

I was wondering about the aligning thing myself... but i guess as long as the hinge is welded/bolted down tight, and not flexing, the doors will have no problems.

well its not just that easy you need somebody helping you those doors weigh about 100lbs each and you need to remove the harness, but quite literally you unbolt it and bolt it on.
