As you look at the door hinge itself you'll see a pin. Look for a flared or flattened end. Take a screwdriver or perferablly a long handeled punch and drive it out with a hammer. Look closely after you get the pin out as there is a bushing on each end of the hinge. If they are oblonged they will need replaced also.
