how to fix a dropped door?

Postby COROLLA KID » May 7th, 2012, 3:52 pm

how do you fix a car door that has a drop, meaning when i open my door the door itself drops a little, as if the hinges are worn...do i replace the hinges or is there a kit with bushings which i can buy?..is there any one with some straightening skills or have seen what the straighteners do in these cases willing to give me some tips? its a EG9 civic BTW
thanks in advance..

if you have time, take out and carry hinge to auto supplies shop, where you will get bushings to buy... and its a do it yourself operation...

if it was up to me, i would just replace with f.used

Same thing happen to mine, I buy the hinges by bick's, cost $100 a pair. I changed it but same problem. So I dunno if it need adjusting properly or what. Best you carry it by a straightener, they won't charge much.

some other honda men had a problem with a drop when they opened the door. they thought it was the hinge but bought some metal bushings at a place in arima (popular parts place.) shaved the top of the bushing a little and they said it fixed the issue.

not sure if applicable just throwing out ideas

When the lower hinge is bad.... plenty straightners add washers between the door and the hinge to build up the wear on the bushings(very cheap work) but i personally, dont ever recommend...

just thinking that the hinge bushings is worn and then cover it up by adding washers... just doesn't cut it...

Juteram's Auto Supplies in Sande Grande and Arima has these civic door bushings for $8 for one but before you buy them make sure to carry the oem bushing for a match. I have a padna in Barackpore side who does the work for small money if anyone's interested. Once the bushing are in the door will not make cracking or breaking sounds. Numbers and location for Juteram's are listed below.
