door hinge

hi there, can anybody out there tell me how to replace the front door hinge pin? Mine has worn and the door is sagging. It is an EL. I cant see how to get the hinge pin out without taking tho whole door off. There must be an easier way.

Thanks

Re: door hinge

it should only need adjusting, it is pretty easy to take the door off,

-just undo the two 9mm bolts that lock the door onto the hinge
-undo the check strap
-pull the wiring out of the pillar and unplug it
-then open the door all the way and slide the door up and off the hinge.

I would have to say that EA-EL are one of the most easiest doors to take off.

Re: door hinge

I take it the bolts you are refering to are the two that you can see on the hinge when you open the door?

Thanks for that, I will go to a wreckers and have a practice before I try mine.
