Default Front Door Hinges

Do any of you guys know how the lower hinges on the front doors come out? Both of the front ones on the wagon squeak like hell and no amount of lube will eliminate it. Looking at them and comparing them to the back doors, it appears that they have a plastic type cover on them and both are broken. I'd like to replace them and eliminate the damn squeaking. It's driving me nuts. Do the door panels have to come off in order to replace these?

Really? Nobody else has ever had this happen? I'll research it in a few weeks when I get a chance to go back to the junkyard. I'm going to figure it out come hell or high water!

Rube

pls post a few up close pics. I have a 1991-2001 S car Collision Repair guide with exploded diagrams of anything and everything and should be able to id the part. It's tough to tell from these exploded diagrams what goes where as the exploded parts in the diagram are not always aligned.

I'll try to get some loaded later today, Derf. I got a lot of crap going on around the house right now. Hanging wallpaper, painting, installing laminate floors etc. Gotta get the house ready to put up for sale. I bought a business in Polk County, FL and have to get down there ASAP to get it up and running. I'd like to be there by years end, but don't know if that's going to happen. I may have to send the wife and kids ahead and let them just rent a place and get it started while I stay in TN and try to sell the house.

from my limited research (the internet is a big place) i, based on older l car posts, you can
A) remove the outer panel

or

B) loosen the bottom three screws of the inner panel to get to the speaker screws, remove the speaker , then have access.

I like method A as it does not involve bending of any door panels.

Again this from older posts across the net

Thanks, derf. The next time I head to pull a part, I'll let you know. I'll practice on one of their cars first! LOL

It's going to be a few months, derf. I gotta get this house sold first and am doing some "fixing up", before putting it on the market. I just finished the new laminate flooring and will be working on the paint over the next couple of weeks. Hopefully going to list it before the end of the month.
