Default Sedona Rear Sliding Door Hinge Rollers

Hi Folks

Got a problem with the rear doors on my 02 sedona. The driver side rear sliding door has become a pain to close (almost impossible), upon inspection it would appear that the rollers that are on the rear most of the 3 hinges have disintergrated and fallen off... leaving just the remaining 'stalks' wobbling about inside the slider channel that runs under the rear-most side window... it looks like the passenger side ones are on their way out too!

Does anyone know if/where you can get hold of these or if you have to buy whole hinges?

Cheers

Ginger

remember to spray lubricate the roller hinges that carry these.
If door appears to get jammed, that is often the reason..

The little nylon rollers are available.
You may have to re-weld metal and re-shape the round lugs they sit on - if badly worn from use whilst damaged.

Default Bushes replacement

I have just repaired both centre brackets on a Kia Sedona 2001 TD GSX. Each bracket has 2 bushes and 1 roller bearing. I needed to replace both bushes. The bushes had the following specification:

Outside diameter: 10 mm
Inside diameter: 6 mm

The stud on which the bushes sit is 7 mm, but the bush needs to be longer to extend into the rail. I only had one option available so I used:

Length: 10 mm

I obtained parts here: AM0610-10 Oilite Plain Bush 6x10x10mm Simply Bearings Ltd

To access the centre bracket: first, remove the C pillar trim panel, which requires unbolitng the seat belt shoulder mount. Undo the two nuts for the rear window in the C pillar, and then unscrew the rear window catch (at the rear window). Remove the rear window from the outside. Then, on the outside, remove the plastic stop at the rear of the sliding door rail. Detach the centre bracket from the door by undoing 3 bolts on the inside rear centre of the door, underneath a small trim panel, while the door is closed. Providing support for the door, open the door and slide the bracket to the rear of the rail.

Assembly is the reverse of disassembly, except you will drop nuts inside the body of the car, and the seat belt shoulder mount must be torqued correctly.

I can't recall exactly, but I think I just undid the bracket from the door and just ran the loose bracket backwards out of the channel under the window. No removal of window...
You access bracket thru a small panel in door trim...
Had to remove the screw/plastic stop at the channel end.

And once you reassemble bracket into door - you need to realign everything so top of door doesn't scrape on top of car during open/close. Adjust bracket bolt tightening/door sag with top roof bracket bolts as well.

If door is jammed, some lubricant sprayed in channel, and hand pressure on centre bracket end to & fro may assist in sliding...

I think I also once just slid entire door back off the rail, but from memory - it was tight and rubbed paintwork - car was already well marked up though.. And the risk of damaging the door/glass not worth repeating...

I think I've written before about an alignment issue with a pin bending at the rear end of sliding door. It can lead to door being jammed tight shut.
They eliminated pin in latter years.
