Door Hinge replacement 99 Silverado

Anyone have good instructions or tips on replacing door hinges on a 99 Silverado? It looks like someone did a poor job of replacing the pins and as a result, the entire hinges are going to need to be changed.

I was under the impression they are not really replacable, at least to us normally folks. They are welded in place to the door.

Re: Door Hinge replacement 99 Silverado

We sell all the same products from Total Auto.
We have installed many of their hinge replacement kits. It helps to have a door lift though or at least a makeshift if a DIY

I can send you the Factory replacement instructions from Gm if you want. Give me you email and I can send the file. Easier than you may think

Impossible to reweld them back on. GM can't even do it. You have to bolt them back on. Send me email and I can send you the factory repair sheets

Are you talking about replacing door side & post side hinges on 1 door or all hinges on both front doors & painting them + these hinges are not cheap. I would suggest posting pictures of your doors & maybe we can help save you some money. I would figure that you would only need to replace the post side of the hinge if they just tried to replace the pins & made a mess of them. The best way to do it is to remove the door completely & then tackle the hinges, I can explain if you need more help. James.

The $900 is from GM for one door to do both complete door hinges.
He now has the Factory replacement instruction sheets. The door side is easy. The body side a little harder but you need GM's kit to do it right. The door side hinge kit will cost around $60.00 each hinge. the body side less than $100.00 . Right there your looking at $320.00 w/o the hinge pins. Then you need the repair kit if replacing the body hinges. then the hinge pin kit of your choice. Factory or the newer replacement kits.
It is about a 3 hour job to do w/o tearing anything up. Pictures would help.
We have done many of these replacements, we do this for a living (I think).
The design is a piece of crap. A big wind blows open the door on pushes the door past the liitle stop and now you have a 90 degree door and a bent hinge.

Re: Door Hinge replacement 99 Silverado

mbgmike Are we talking about the same trucks ? I know the 88-98 body style has the pin separate from the hinges. The 99-07 hinge should have the pin incorporated with the body side hinge (on gm replacements) & a check strap separate. I was referring to a picture of his hinges. You can have all the hinge replacements. I hate them !! James

Yes he asked about a 1999. The door replacement hinges are from GM.
part number 12475677 for body side replacement hinge
part number 12472843 for door side replacement hinge

These are replacement hinges that bolt on from GM there are NO weld on replacement ones.

Here da are

sorry if any confusion

body side is 90.00 each door side $55.00 each

Re: Door Hinge replacement 99 Silverado

???(Attached Images) ??? SEE mbgmike POST ABOVE FOR PICTURES

Hinge 101 ! First hinge #12472843 in top picture is 99-07 door side, bolt on replacement (welded on from the factory) , Second hinge #25863523 is 07-09 new body style lower (bolt on from the factory). Second picture #12475677 is 98 & older or 99 classic body style, body side hinge, bolt on replacement (welded on from the factory). Is your 99 Silverado the new body style (99-07) or is it a 99 classic (88-98) body style, would make a big difference on what hinges you need ? Thanks for the pictures mbgmike. James.

Re: Door Hinge replacement 99 Silverado

Thats more work than the factory fix plus i doubt if that would withstand the time. The Factory fix is the way to go on this. Its really pretty simple. you drill out the holes. fish a knurled bolt up though the access hole in pillar. pull it through the oversize hole and bolt your hinge on. If their was an easier way we would do it.

Re: Door Hinge replacement 99 Silverado

Well, finished the top hinge. Not hard to install at all but, getting the old ones off is a PITA.

yeah. One of GM's better ideas. The a pillar actually flexes when you open the door if you watch. We have had to fix many of these good money maker for gm dealers

Re: Door Hinge replacement 99 Silverado

It's finally complete. I have to do a little adjustment (2X4 to the door) but, it is a lot better than it was. If anyone is trying this, I would strongly recommend an air chisel.

Thanks to everyone for the help.
