How do I fix a sagging car door?

How can I fix a sagging car door? I drive an old car, and I noticed that the door has now started to sag. I don't want to have to go to the repairman—is there any way I can fix it at home?

Good for you for noticing! A sagging car door means that your door hinges are worn out and need replacing. Quickly fix your sagging door by following the steps below:
  • Note your car’s make and model and buy the proper hinge for your car.
  • Using a car jack, prop the door up.
  • Remove the hinge bolts attaching the hinge to the car and replace the old hinge with the new one
  • Adjust as necessary.
There you go! Your door should be as good as new.
Now that your door’s all fixed, you might want to take a look at your car insurance policy to see if that needs updating too! One easy way to do this is with the Jerry app—we’ll get you customized quotes in seconds so that all you have to do is choose the plan that works best for you. And once you’ve chosen one, we’ll even help you switch!
Best of luck with the repairs!
