Ways to Troubleshoot Your Chevrolet S10 Door

A car door is probably one of the most frequently used vehicle parts. It's basically the only way you can access the inside of your vehicle. Aside from allowing you to properly get in and out of your car, the door also protects your interior from unauthorized access and damaging outside elements. Over time, the door and its components may fail due to frequent use, damage, and lack of lubrication. When this happens, you'll have trouble accessing your vehicle. This will not only be a hassle for you, but it can also jeopardize your safety, especially if the door gets stuck. If you're having problems with your Chevrolet S10 door lately, it would be best to do some troubleshooting right away to fix the situation. Here are a few tips to help you out:

Squeaks

If your door gives off a squeaking noise each time you open and close it, then you probably need to check its hinges for damage or rust. Squeaks are a door's way of catching your attention and telling you that there's a problem with its hinges. If you don't address this problem immediately, your door will sag and even get to a point that it won't close properly. Frequently opening and closing your door creates friction and pressure that can damage the hinges and make them squeak. The first thing you should do when this happens is to inspect the upper and lower hinges. Open and close your door slowly to determine which hinge is squeaking. To fix this problem, apply a coat or two of lithium grease on the damaged hinges. The grease will help lubricate the hinges to lessen the friction and pressure from your door. If your door still squeaks, then the hinges need to be replaced.

Frozen door

A frozen door is a common problem during winter season. The cold temperature can freeze the lock and the seals, preventing you from opening your door. Usually, the ice forms on the cracks of the door and handle, so any attempt to melt the ice should be directed on these small gaps. Windshield wiper fluid is effective in melting the frozen layer of ice on the door and handle. You may also use a hair dryer or a lighter to melt the ice.

  • Door Care: Tips in Maintaining Your Chevrolet S10 Door 27 February 2013

    Frequent use, harsh weather conditions, damaging outside elements, and age can all contribute to the deterioration of your car door's condition. A worn-out door can significantly decrease the aesthetic appeal of your ride, making it look unsightly and uncared for. If you fail to remove the scratches, dents, and rust on your car door, you'll eventually have to replace the entire unit. To avoid unnecessary repair and replacement costs, you need to give adequate care and attention to your car door. Performing regular maintenance will not only prolong your door's life, but it will also improve the look of your vehicle's exterior. Here are a few tips in keeping your Chevrolet S10 door in good condition:


    Lubricate the door hinges.


    Friction and pressure from your car door can place a heavy strain on its hinges. Without proper lubrication, the hinges will squeak noisily and even cause the door to sag. In some cases, damaged hinges can also make it difficult for you to open and close your door properly. To reduce friction and pressure and eliminate noisy squeaks, it is important to lubricate the hinges regularly. Lithium grease is effective in lubricating the hinges and cutting down friction from your car door. Apply this grease on the pins and hinges along the door frame and let it sit for several hours to achieve best results.


    Remove scratches right away.


    A scratched door can lessen the charm of your vehicle. Scratches are an eyesore, but they can be easily removed without taking your car to a bodyworks repair shop. All you need to do is to fill the scratches with a car scratch remover solution, and your vehicle will look good as new again. Make sure you use a non-abrasive microfiber cloth when applying the solution to prevent further damage on the door.


    Clean and polish the door regularly.


    Regular cleaning can help prevent dirt and debris from building up on your car door. A mixture of warm water and car shampoo is effective in removing caked dirt and grime from the door's surface. Wipe it clean with a microfiber cloth to completely eliminate all traces of dirt. Also, buff your car door regularly with polishing cloth to maintain its shine.
