Door pin/bushing replacement guide: http://www.digitalrevo.com/jeep/doorpins.html
To repair a broken door hinge on a 1991 Cherokee Briarwood, a new piece of metal should be welded in to hold the hinge. Then, a new hinge should also be welded in that is aligned with the door pin.
To replace the hinge on a 95 Mercury Cougar, remove the bolts holding the hinge in place. Find a replacement hinge from the manufacturer and install it using the right hardware.

You can purchase replacement hinge pin and bushing kits from Napa, O'Reilly, Etc. Part numbers are: Dorman 38422 NAPA 675-1594 They are about $5.99 per pin, (2) required per door. Then you have to install as listed below on digitalrevo. There is a hinge kit available from dealers- my understanding is that it's pretty expensive, and replaces the complete hinge, so it requires welding a new hinge to the door. My door was rusted out at the bottom anyway, so I bought a complete replacement from a salvage shop. Here's a guide to replace the door pins and bushings. http://www.digitalrevo.com/jeep/doorpins.html Digitalrevo is not an active website as of 12/24/07

There are replacement hinges for that vehicle but it is quite a job. The original hinges are welded in to the door and pillar. The upper pillar side hinge requires removing the dash assembly. The replacement hinges I bought from the dealer came with instructions as to where to drill.
You can purchase a hinge pin from your local NAPA or O'Reilly's, in their "HELP" line. P/N Dorman 38422. Also see the attached link another user entered. It is VERY helpful. http://www.digitalrevo.com/jeep/doorpins.html As far as I know, they are correct, you cannot buy just the pin & bushings. You could try getting one at a salvage yard, if it is not worn out.
This is the most difficult hinge to replace on that vehicle. The original hinge is welded in place. The replacement hinge bolts in. In order to gain access to the back side of the hinge that is welded to the cab the entire dash assembly needs to be removed. Many times the original hinge can be rebuilt in place with pin and bushing kits and a little welding and drilling of the holes if they are damaged/oblonged. You will need a special tool to r&r the door hinge spring. This tool is available from your local auto parts store for less than $20.
Hello... I have the very same problem. To remove the hinge pin, you must heat the center of the hinge where the pin goes through, and use an air hammer with a flat pointed end. Manage the air hammer under the hinge, point on the bottom of the pin and pull the trigger. Steady the air hammer so it doesn't move around on you. ....Good Luck!!!!
to remove the doors you un-bolt the door then you lift the door up and off of the hinge.

My rear hinge recently just broke and I called the dealership about a recall and they said they don't have any recalls out on my vehicle. Anybody have any advice. I have a 2003 Ford Explorer Sport.
Raise the hood and support it in the center with a stick between the lock and radiator support. The opposite hinge will keep the hood up, for the most part. Have a folded towel or blanket to protect the fender and windshield from the rear corner of the hood. Remove the 2 nuts holding the hood to the hinge. Lift the hood corner to free the studs from the hinge, keeping control of the hood to rest it on the blanket. Now you can remove the 3 bolts holding the hinge to the body. Two bolts on the top of the hinge are accessible from the outside; the third, bottom bolt is accessed from the engine compartment. Reverse procedure to install the new hinge.

A hinge joint is not immovable. A hinge joint has one plane of motion. A good illustration of a hinge joint is the knee joint.
To replace the Ford Explorer rear window hinge, you have to buy a similar window hinge. Use a screwdriver to open the hinge and replace the hinge but fitting it in the window.
In our joints our hinge joints are located between two bone our hinge joint is our elbow.
