x2 Try lifting the door off. That is what mine looks like and the pins are broken off.

In case you don't know it, you can't knock the bolt out. It's welded to the top part of the hinge; the bottom part of the hinge is the one it comes out of.

And this is almost as good as the guy who got Linex on his junk.

of course i tried to lift it off, thats kind of the point. ok, well, i will go pick up sum penetrating lube and see if that will get it. i gues if it comes to it i can always cut off the very bottom of the hinge. no not the bottom hinge, part of the bottom hinge.

Stick a jack and a 2x4 under it and SLOWLY push up. Make sure to catch it though, cause bent door corners suck.

Yeah, push it up slowly and hang on to the door! My hinges don't seem to be lined up quite right so I put a 4x4 on my floor jack and slowly pushed up on the door until it suddenly released and the door literally launched right out of the hinges..
