You know you could throw that rule back at her for countless things at home that wives always like to change.


Probably won't work out in your favor!


Glad you got those pesky doors off.

X2...With the doors locked, they won't come out anyway.

It also took me about 30 min of pulling and shaking to get my doors off for the first time

Rayko Whether its my full doors or half doors, I don't bother with the nuts either. If someone wants your doors the nut isn't going to stop them.

Dep863 I never put the nuts back on, the doors aren't going anywhere!

Sounds like they're locked already.

Try applying downward pressure on the nut while loosening it. Once you get it off you're going to need a tap and die set to get those threads fixed. Alternatively, if the lock you're talking about replaces the nut, then just use a nut splitter. Also, if you've never removed your doors before, you may have trouble getting them out of the hinges. The first time was a real struggle for me, but once you get them off put some lithium grease on the pins.

baker3 Try wedging a flat blade between the nut and hinge and put pressure on the nut while trying to loosen it. Mine was stripped as well and thats what I did and it came off. I never put any back on, its just not worth my time.

larjeep Cut the nut off and re thread the pin with a die.

BLK00TJ You can try a nut splitter and hopefully the threads on the pin are still in good shape.

Wanted to Remove doors... BAD LJ

Hello Guys n Gals ,

I tried to take the drivers door off My new to me LJ and the PO killed the top Door pin by stripping the nut after putting it on the door(nut spins but will not come off)... so my Question is can you just replace the pin or do you have to replace the whole hinge?

I am going to have to cut the nut off the door ... Please tell me my options


I found the hinges on morris but cannot locate just pins... I found bushings (ratings say they suck) but no pins HELP A BROTHA OUT HERE THANKS

Wanna be set free... and Ride topless...
