How do you replace a door hinge pin on a 2002 S10 ex cab pickup truck?

Having an assistant would be helpful. Place a folded towel on top of your hydraulic floor jack and position it under the door aprox in the center so it will balance. Raise the jack up and make contact will the door bottom. I recommend purchasing the tool to r & r the detente door spring. Most auto parts stores will carry that tool and it sells for less than $20. Using the detente spring tool remove the spring. Next remove the retaining clips from each door pin. Don't try to save them because new ones come with the new pins. While your assistant is holding the door drive out the old pins with a punch and hammer. The top pin goes down and the lower pin goes up for removal. The door can be moved away a few inches giving you enough room to replace the bushings without disconnecting the wires. The replacement pin kits also come with new bushings. Drive out the old bushings with your punch and hammer. Do not use a hammer to install the new bushings. They are brittle and most likely break if you do use the hammer. Draw the new bushings in place with a bolt and nut with various sized washers. Move the door back into position and slide the new pins in place. You will need to drive the pins home with your punch and hammer for the last 1/8". Install the new retaining clips. Remove floor jack. Slip the detente spring back into position then remove detente spring tool. Done.

Why did detente fall apart?

Either one side could gain from breaking the detente, or one side was attempting to mitigate the consequences of the other side breaking the detente first. Sometimes the breaking of the detente is mutual, as it is seen as inevitable. Sometimes some other influence forces the breaking of the detente. This can either be a single event or a long drawn out happening such as the increase of fear in the general populace such that they are provoked to demand action.
