It's not uncommon that after years of opening and closing the doors to your Ford F-150 that the hinge pins will wear and one of your Ford's doors may begin to sag or perhaps will no longer open and close properly. Damage to your Ford F-150's door may result; even worse, you may end up with damage to your truck's body. Removing the hinge pins on your Ford F-150 isn't time consuming or expensive, and is the first step in remedying your truck door issues.

Things You'll Need

  • Jack stand
  • Old towel or sheet
  • Punch
  • Hammer
  • Park your Ford F-150 on a flat surface. Ensure that both the parking break and the emergency break are engaged.

  • Drape the jack stand with an old sheet or towel.

  • Prop your Ford F-150 door open with the jack stand.

  • Place the tip of the punch against the bottom tip of the top hinge pin (the tip is pointing up).

  • Strike the punch with the hammer with enough force so the top hinge pin is dislodged from its location, but not so much so that the Ford F-150's hinge or door sustains any damage.

  • Place the tip of the punch against the bottom tip of the bottom hinge pin (the tip is pointing down).

  • Strike the punch with the hammer with enough force so the bottom hinge pin is dislodged from its location, but not so much so that the Ford F-150's hinge or door sustains any damage.
