my bushing is worn and sqeaks like crazy. any way of replacing this or do i have to get an entire hinge?
well i know for a fact mine is, i can see it busted in piecesNow just because your door is squeaking doesnt mean you need to replace the bushings. Generaly the you change the bushings because your door is sagging.
Open your door 3/4 or so and pick up on the bottom of the door and wiggle it up and down. Did it wiggle much? Now push the door to the striker (dont shut it). Do the doors body lines line up? Now push the door shut slowly, did you notice the door move upward just a little when you shut it?
If you answered yes to any of these questions you may be a canidate for changing your door pins.
Rember that your striker is adjustabe, you may need to adjust your striker after you replace the pins. Move the striker up or down, in or out until you get your door to shut just right.
same thing I was wandering. I always thought the whole hinge had to be replaced. I bought a set but havent had them painted yet.The only problem I have with my DS door on the White Elephant is the roller for the opening detents. It is getting pretty loose and leans at an angle. Can that be replaced, or am I looking at replacing a hinge? Is the hinge easier than the roller? Can I pull one from a PS door, and transplant it? Any how-tos?
