In other words, The door doesn't need to come up or down, but instead back towards the trunk. Will the trick work for this? It's bent so badly that I can't even close the door.

Thanks,

If you have a normal front swinging door (not "suicide") then yes it should work. But look at the design, does it look like the hinge pin will move back if you block it like I show?

If it needs to go back, you simply bend the lower one, then the upper one, bringing it back.
