Door pin and bushing repair

There's a new story entry added:

Door pin and bushing repair


Quote:
Well, since no one has done a how-to on this subject, I figured I would since we always see this question...The following pictures were taken while we we're working on Grappler's 95 2 door Blazer (www.vettel.org/andy). We completed both his doors and my front passenger side door. (www.pghconsulting.net/teal). All told we averaged 15-20 minutes per door for this repair. The bushings on all 3 doors were cracked and at the beggining of being egged.

Hey thanks for taking the time to show how to.

Pretty cool of you.

I have repaired egged hinges by using J.B. weld. I simply jb welded the new bushing into the hinge. The jb takes up space between egged hinge and bushing. Glue together, insert pin to keep straight, Let it dry of course a couple days then put door back on. Of course welding and drilling is much better but takes much more time and not everyone has a welder. I have done this on a couple cars and it seemed to work great but sold them before I could see if it lasted or not.

I have a hard time getting the pin all of the way in, are you sure it's alright to just hammer it in? I don't want to f' up the bushing by hammering too hard...

and a warning to everone, make sure you really really be careful taking the door off, since the top of the fender really f'es up the paint. Happened to me, and the tape didn't really help. The tape actually left residue! Damn masking tape. So, becareful and don't be stupid like I was.

Re: Door pin and bushing repair

There's ALWAYS a "tool" you need.


Glad I found this forum. This is exactly what I need to fix on my S-10.

Though I hope the bushings will be enoguh and I won't have to replace the bracket.

Re: Door pin and bushing repair

How about a part number for the pin and bushing. I bought one from NAPA, but the SOB is four foot longer than need be. If I were to install the damn thing, it would stick out above the fender!

look at the bushings in the hinges... if they're worn out, broken, missing, or cracked... that means that you need new pins and bushings.

Re: Door pin and bushing repair

Hey guys...

Why not ever give your local Chevy/GM dealership parts dept. a shot? Most of the time you will find that the parts are easier to install and priced competitive. Even if the cost is more, you can get the advice you need to do the job right the first time. Just a thought.

With the door open lift up on the open end of the door, if it moves it needs bushings. When you close the door and it runs into and then up the striker it needs bushings. Look at the door hinge you will see the worn out bushing.

If you go to the dealer you will need two bushings(both different) one pin and one retainer per hinge.

Rain runs right down the pillar taking the grease off. Always lube your hinges and you will keep from having to do this repair. Also lube your Blazer tail gate hinge pins.

Re: Door pin and bushing repair

Does anyone know where the sensor is located that tells the truck that the driver door is closed. Mine is not working. The chime goes off when the key is simply in the ignition, even if the door is closed. When I turn the key to ACC to listen to the radio if I am just sitting in the truck, the chime continues to sound. VERY ANNOYING! Also, the lights do not come on when the door is opened. Actually I think the problem is with both doors. It does not matter which position the dome override is in. (OUT and the interior lights stay on continuously. IN and they never come on) Any assistance on this would be appreciated.

Re: Door pin and bushing repair

As far as I know the body section of hinges are spot welded on.
Top Down Solutions has a few tools avail that help knocking the
bushings and pins in and out..Here's one for example. TDS
is for mid gen Camaros and Firebirds, but some parts from
these and S-Trucks match up.

bushing tool

gmpartdirect.com has genuine gm pins and bushing fairly cheap if one would want to go that route.

Re: Door pin and bushing repair

The hinge in the picture looks normal. The small gap at the top is just where the factory seam sealer has deteriorated(sp). You can check your pins by opening the door about a quarter of the way and lifting on the back end. Any play in the bushing will be evident. If it rattles while driving check the door latch itself or striker for wear. Worn weatherstrips may also be the problem.


If people could only say," I'm sorry, I'm not educated on this topic and cannot respond intelligently to it."

Re: Door pin and bushing repair

Has anyone tried to replace one pin at a time (rather than doing top and bottom together by taking the door off)?

There'd be less room to work, but the weight of the door would be supported by the unworked-on hinge (the helper would just have to keep it from tipping) . . . .


BTW, I just called my local GMC dealer - they want $250 (estimated) to replace a pair of pins and bushings on ONE door!

Re: Door pin and bushing repair

ok, my problem is when I changed my pins and bushings it made my door drop about 1 to 2 inches when I open it. And that is twice as much as it was before I changed the pins and bushings.


the truck is an 88' and it is bagged and body dropped. if it is because of the body drop what can I do about it.

Or if I bought a suicide door hinge kit would I be able to correct it that?


any help would be greatly appriciated!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: Door pin and bushing repair

Someone mentioned egg shape hinges. Mine is beyond egg shape. If GM would have used bolt-in hinges instead of spot-weld hinges it would have been gravy. It appears my truck was hit in the drivers door which damage the hinge, the door wa repaired and the hinge was so called repaired.

I'm torn between replacing the hinge or welding and redrilling for new pins.

For those who might say hinge removal is possible, I already removed a door hinge from the salvage yard.









The first hinge I tried to removed I completely detroyed the hinge, the second hinge is what you're looking at. If I had to do it again I would drill of the 4 spot welds to make removal a lot easier.

I realize this is a little drastic but once a take pics of my current hinge you'll see what I'm dealing with.

Re: Door pin and bushing repair

Can I ask two questions about this repair:

(1) I've been reading as many places I can find about this repair and I'm concerned that hammering on the existing bushings to get them out will damage the hinge. Is there any trick to this I should know?

(2) Does anyone know the answer to the earlier question about replacing one hinge at a time? Looks to me like my lower hinge is OK and only the top one needs a new bushing. Anyone have any insight on the feasibility of replacing only the top one?

thanks

Re: Door pin and bushing repair

The holes in the top hinge of my '96 Jimmy are now worn oblong--I guess I've read it being called "egged?"

Anyway, a year and a half ago, I had the pins and bushings replaced, but the top one blew out again. A local body shop suggested drilling out the holes a bit and replacing the pins with a set of over-sized pins and bushings.

Anyone have any advice on this? If not, I plan on just replacing, using the standard hinge and filling in the open ends of the oblong hole with JB weld.

Any advice would be much appreicated..thanks!!

Re: Door pin and bushing repair

My father and I replaced the pins and bushings in the drivers door. The hole was egged pretty badly, but we used Caterpillar epoxy and a thicker wall bushing.
Works good, no more sag.

Re: Door pin and bushing repair

if the blazer door is the front door, then yes.

the blazer and s10s are the same for most body parts, i put a 94 blazer hood/grille/bumper/core support on my 1991 s10 i had and it worked with no problems.

im replacing my 03 s10's driver door with a 98+ blazer door.



03 S10 Ext Cab-BD 3.5" bagged- 18/20s its ORANGE
1991 s10 reg cab 5spd- SOLD- biggest mistake
1985 2wd 2dr jimmy-totaled- samwhiched in a 5 car pileup

no, the 93 blazer is totally different. 2nd gen S10s started in 94, and 2nd gen blazers in 95.

Re: Door pin and bushing repair

thanks for all the tips. will help me a lot. I had the impression there were some pictures of the door removal, but could not find them. they are still somewhere available?. Did you remove the fender before removing the door?

Re: Door pin and bushing repair

i think the pics might be gone, they were pretty old. i dont remember seeing anything about removing the fenders however, just tape/cover them up so you dont scratch them.

Re: Door pin and bushing repair

Dorman sells the door hinge pin, 2 bushings (one slightly larger than the other) and the retainer ring in a kit through their "Help!" Motormite brand stocking number 38419. This number is good at any parts store. You would need 2 of these to fix one door. This kit covers S-10s, Blazers, Jimmys, Sonomas, and Bravadas 1994-2005.

They work perfectly, I've fixed my 2000 S-10 driver's door and my mom's 2000 Blazer driver's door with them. The Blazer pin holes were slightly "egged" too. These kits took care of it, no JB Weld, no problems. I replaced these pins and bushings by myself, I used a car jack with a folded wool Army blanket draped over it to hold up the edge of the door while I pounded out the pins. The hardest part was re-installing that stupid heavy duty spring. To get it out, I just smacked it out of the way with a hammer and brass punch. I highly recommend that Harbor Freight door spring tool, though. It is kind of a piece of crap and hard to operate, but for $3.00 it makes life a lot easier.
