How to Replace Door Hinge Pin (Sagging Door Fix) – [2000 GMC Sierra 1500 SLE]

Hello everybody, my name is Ulrich with UFixItAuto and I am starting a channel on automotive repair and I am going to be showing you how to do repairs using my cars. Please, if you wanna see this channel grow, then make sure you like, subscribe and share. I will be investing everything that I make from these videos back into the channel to give you guys more quality content, but the amount of videos and how frequent depends on you guys and how much you guys are willing to support my channel! Please leave comments as to what you would love to see done and how I can improve my channel!

I am showing you how to fix your sagging door by changing out your door hinge pins using my 2000 GMC Sierra 1500 SLE as an example. I bought this truck with 260,000 miles on the clock and I want to make sure I keep this truck for a while and who knows if the previous owners even did regular maintenance. The process should be the exact same if you have a 1999-2007 GMC Sierra or 1999-2007 Chevrolet Silverado.

Please inspect the door hinge pins and find out if you need to cut off the original pins.

Good video, maybe lower window 1st to protect and create a additional handle? Wind noise be gone. 186000 kilometers.

Henry Herber says:

I have replaced the pins twice in the last three years. Oem pins were with c clips. A lot cheaper, but these new nylon nut pins seem to be a lot sturdier. Thanks for the heads up on an annoying but common issue.

Thank you for making this video. Extremely detailed, no bs, helpful video. I never would’ve found the pins you were using if it were for this video.

very helpful! thanks a lot

Nickolas Couture says:

Great video! My factory pins were riveted on so I had to cut them off. The top pin on the top bracket was seized on the bottom side. It took a while to hammer out. If you have these kind of pins I would recommend cutting off the bottoms pins first, then both ends of the top pin and get the bracket out so you can hammer out the stuck piece

John Gardner says:

You made this look EASY. Going to attempt this on my 2000 Silverado.
