    Hi there, remove the door and see if the pin is one of the long type,not 2 little riveted types,leave the hinge attached to the car,makes it easier to align the door later,remove whats left of the old pin and take it to a body shop supply store,they usually have a box of different pins and bushings,you may get lucky and find one that fits,what i do is find a pin and bushing that is close,then you drill out the stationary part to accept a bushing,then you make sure the pin is tight in the hole of the other part of the hinge,I am not the best teacher,but you should be able to get an idea as to what i mean?.it will take some searching but you should be able to fix it pretty easy.
