How do I fix this driver's side door?


I have 2 problems with the drivers side door.


1. There is a spring that came out. When I try to put it back in like the other door, the door won't close. You can see that the pin that goes through the hinges is bent/broken (red arrow) on the driver's side door and not on the passenger door. This is usually what one of the pieces of the door rolls against when it's opening/closing. I also attached a picture of the passenger door.



2. The driver's side door panel is loose. It seems as though some of the plastic screws are broken. Do I need to take the whole door panel off and replace these screws?

Your spring popped out as the roller on the bent pin doesnít work anymore. You need to replace that pin/roller first. Door panel clips must line up in holes then you press them in. If clips donít hold you can buy them at auto parts stores. I think Dorman has them.

Do you know the proper method of removing that roller/pin?

Looks like I might have to Dremel or grind it out?

The top of pin is mushroomed to hold it in. Dremel the top and punch it out downwards. I see door pin bushing are shot too so you may want to change them too. Iím sure you can get the parts need at an auto parts store. Door will have to come off to make it easier.
