    I would assume you remove the hinge pins and leave the hinge half attatched to the door. If so, how do those hinge pins come out? Mine have a round head, no nut or anything. Do you just tap them out with a drift or what?

    From the bottom, just like a door hinge IIRC as I haven't used mine in years. Maybe some PB Blaster if they're sticking.

    There will be a set of plastic bushings in there also, if you have any slop in the hinge then replace the bushings. I think Kurt at cruiseroutfitters has them for like $1 a piece.

    The hinges can be very tough to get out. I've used different methods. What has worked for me was a combonation of screw drivers and hammers. Try using a flat head screw driver to get underneath the "head" of the pin. You can also come in from underneath with an old philips head. After I finally got mine out this last time, I found where it was hanging up and smoothed it out some with a drill.
