So I tried taking my doors off a couple weeks back and of course I snapped the bolts in the process. No big deal I wasn't going to put them back on anyways.

However, the doors will not budge. I've PB blasted them for days on end and still not the slightest movement. I've tried knocking the pins loose with a hammer but all I've done is chip the paint and annoy my neighbors.

Any suggestions on how I can get these things off?!?!

X2

Hadn't had mine off for a while. Took about an hour per side, while pulling up and going back and forth. Keep at it, they will come off. Good luck!

Some have used a block of wood and a hi-lift jack. Just make sure you have a friend there ready to catch them when they pop! Good Luck!

X3 happens every spring with my passenger door. Once you get them off, grease the hell out of everything. You'll never have a problem again, or at least the rest of the season.

+1 or get some good anti-seize and cake it on the bolts and hinges and then use a q-tip To clean up all the visible and hard to teach areas it may have squeezed out of.

This is what I did. Just make sure you're lifting (floor jack) up close to the body so you don't tweak the door. After I got mine off I used emery cloth to sand them down. Pops right on and off now.

Freeze Off- Follow instructions on can and your done. Lift door right off (just like that)-I took my friends doors off in about 1 minute when he has been trying to get them off for weeks with PB.


Buy and use freeze off one time and you will never buy junk PB again.

Try Sea Foam Deep Creep! This stuff is by far the best I've tried. You will never use WD40, PB blaster or anything else again! Its a little expensive at $11-$12 a can, but you can spray it on a bolt and somehow it will run UP the bolt. Can't explain it, but I've seen it. Try it.
