I tap them in with a small hammer and a piece of wood if they are tight ,usually they just press right in using your fingers if they're really wore out and the bushing hole is wore out then it gets a little complicated ,you have to use the ribbed ,oversized bushing and that involves plugging and\or redrilling the bushing hole ,on a welded hinge it aint easy,theres always something in the way.
These doors are a major PITA to get apart everything is ritited on so just getting the out took way longer than it should have. I sure am glad the pins and bushings are still available though ,I guess I gave up to easy after the dealer said they were discontinued...
