Usually the reason the hinges wear out is because the piece of plastic surrounding the bolt on the door latch (bolt in door frame, not door) has worn out allowing the door to droop and putting stress on the hinges. The hinges are a bitch to change. Before you do anything scribe an outline of where each door hinge is mounted so you can get the new one mounted as close as possible to where the originals are mounted..

The TCCoA web site has instructions for a hinge pin and bushing replacement shortcut. I cannot vouch for the article since I have not tried it. http://www.tccoa.com/articles/exterior/index.html #
