define loose. the hinge pivot? the way it holds to the door or the car. if it's the
hinge, (get a friend) gut the wiring from the door and CAREFULLY (while the door is
supported) remove the "e" clip for both pins. then remove said pin, then remove
the door from the car. the hinge looks like it's got bushings in it. these can be replaced
and if the pins are not worn, the pins can be re-used. I know ford has a kit for this for
the mustangs. (cover the door and fender lip with masking tape, it'll let you slip up a
bit and not scratch the paint) when the bushings and pins are replaced, the door will not
need to be re-aligned (unless they were adjusted to compensate for the failing hinge) the
first time, close the door CAREFULLY.
