First, you need one of these to remove the spring in the hinge:
Once you do that, each of the two hinge pins has a sheet metal clip holding it in place. Remove the clips, remove the hinge pins, and the door falls on your foot.
Note that if you have power windows or locks, you need to disconnect the wires first. There should be connectors in the harness behind the kick panel.
Once you get this far, you MIGHTASWELL replace the bushings and pins. The replacements are inexpensive and these doors tend to wear them out.
