Default Worn Door Pins

I was surprised to find my search turned up nothing on worn door pins for the 6th gen Max. Purchased our second 6th gen this week, after looking at a dozen- 3 of em had worn drivers door pins. Obviously neglecting to keep the pins greased on the door hinges leaves them egg shaped and worn. Does anyone have a vendor to get these hinges- would you swap the pins with bushings like the 80 style G bodies? I think dropping the front quarter panel would expose the hinge for a simple replacement. Has anyone done this? Thanks, Bill

got lots of views on this post, but no one has any input? I saw a post for lambo doors and the front quarter reveals the two hinges- is this the way to replace these? does anyone know where the hinges can be found? any advice is appreciated

Yes those are the hinges. Its really a non existent issue on maintained Maximas unless owner before you placed a lot of dynamat in the doors and made them heavier.
You can get them at the dealer. 2 bolts & 2 nuts hold each one.

Gotcha, yeah this one isnt a CPO, and while there isnt any dynamat- they neglected to lube the hinges. Do I need to remove the quarter, or can i remove the door and access them that way?

FYI, &reference quarter panels are in the back fenders are in the front.

Disconnect door electrical connector located behind the kick panel
You will need to unbolt the door then you can unbolt the hinge. (this will save you time and you don't have to remove fenders)
Reverse the procedure to install. I Highly recommend a helper.

Thanks, and not to look a "gift horse in the mouth", but as long as I've been a hot rodder, and import tuner, the front and rear fenders have always been referred to as Quarter panels ie Front quarter etc...
But no matter- you say tomato... lol

I am glad to hear the fender doesnt have to come off, as I dont like adjusting for the reveals, and can do it all with just the door! Thanks for the advice, it is very much appreciated!! I suppose the stealership is the place to get these?

I've got Dynamat Xtreme in both front doors...other than keeping the pins greased, anything else need to be done to keep the wearing to a minimum?

No not really. Its a wear and tear item. Just lube. Slamming doors also puts strains on the front pins especially if your rear strikers latch is not adjusted and causes the door to ride up or down as its closed.
