Typical hinge location

Most cars have their hinges at the front of the door. The door is removed from the body by releasing the hinge securing screws or bolts or a central hinge pin. You may also need to disconnect any check straps and wiring.

As well as replacing a door because it has become rusted or been damaged in an accident, you may also need to do this job before a respray. With the doors off, the door pillars and inside surfaces can then be resprayed properly.

Check strap

Some doors have a check strap to stop it from opening too far. This has to be disconnected along with any electrical wiring (such as to the speakers) and air ducting before you can take off the door.
