Question Hinge Pin & Bushing Replacement 1989 Sentra

I have done a search and came up with some information on this topic, but...

Has anyone figured out which kit in the Help section at the parts store works, I would really like to find the number before I go to the store. The guy at the parts store said that there is not a kit specifically listed for my car and that I should bring one of the pins in so he can try to match it.

Any help would be much appreciated,
Jeff

I did the the pins and bushings on my B12 not that long ago unfortunantly I do not have the nissan part numbers on hand but you will have to go to nissan and order them they are real cheap I paid like 30 or 40 bucks for both doors and a 350z model and a new oil fill cap just ensure that they get you the door hinge pin and not the stupid roll pin that goes in that little metal thing between the hinges. Also it is not a hard job I can ask my girl to look in the glove box for the paper work to see if it has the part numbers for you

Hinge pins and bushings

I got sets for my sentra at NAPA, right off the rack. Just generic stuff. About 6$ a set- 2 bushings and 1 pin.
Hardest part was getting the e-clip back in place on the bottom of the pin after the door was back on the car.
Be careful putting the new bushings in the hinge because they are somewhat brittle bronze.........

stick with the nissan parts here they are inexpensive and are the correct set up not ones that will work and use a socket and hammer to insert the bushing set the socket on the bushing so that the part that the ratchet snaps into is against the bushing then tapp lightly and in the dead center and it should slip in with little fight and not gt cockeyed.

I would've stuck with OEM dealer stuff, but there is no dealer in my part of the country . NAPA is right across the alley from my shop and I can just across the alley and buy parts .......

I did my pin and bushing replacement today - it took about an hour and a half to finish. The first door took the longest. Just thought I would post a few thoughts/pointers for the next guy:

1 - I used Nissan parts cost $40.00 including taxes for all new parts (pins, bushings, and e-clips). The doors work like new again, I no longer have to bump the door with my shoulder to open it, and the gap is equal top to bottom on the front of the door.

2 - The roll pin looking pin that holds the door retainer? (the thing half way up that stops door from opening too wide) - make sure you remove from the bottom - you will have a hard time trying to drive it through from the top - don't ask how I know!

3 - Make sure that you disconnect any wires that go into the door prior to trying to remove the door.

4 - Spray the pins with a good penetrating oil - makes it easier to drive them out.

5 - You may want to put some tape on the leading edge of the door and the trailing edge of the fender to keep from chipping the paint off either edge.

6 - The e-clips are easy to install - especially if you drive the pins in far enough.

7 - The best tool that I had in my box for driving the pins out/in is a 12"x3/4" brass drift. The same drift worked great for driving in the new bushings.

8 - I found it helped to have a jack handy to hold the door up while trying to r/r the pins (that is until a helper came along with a beer, then she was enlisted to hold the door)

9 - I laid the door on a blanket on the grass to r/r the bushings.

Hope this helps, it really is a pretty easy job - just take your time and don't get frustrated.

Are these pins and bushings the same on the Pulsars? I have two - one with doors just starting to sag a little the other I was originaly thinking I had to change the whole hinge (sagging terribly). The manuals I have aren't too clear about these pins.
Thanks

I believe they are the same and you may not need to replace the whole hinge mine was way bad the door would drop a good 1-2 inches when I opened it and the buhings and hinge pins fixed it right up like new. hey 4pt9fiero could you post the part numbers so others can just go to nissan and get what they need thanks.
