ok I take it no one knows how to remove those door pins from a 2004 cav??

online they talk about different models that you can just punch them out but here you cant its mushroomed at the top so I tried cutting torch but flam too big to work in there

First remove the door spring then knock the upper pin down and the lower one up until they come out. have a long 2x4 under door propped up by floor jack

I talked to a mechanic at candian tire, he told me 2004 cav you cant punch them out,

you need to replace the entire hinge, as I tried to punch out but since the pins are mushroomed I tried to use the cutting torch to cut them out
