Door pin welded to bracket-- Why?

This is what I found when I went to install a new door brake on the passenger side (driver's side, no problem). Looks like the PO welded the pin to the bracket. Before I abort the mission, I'm wondering if anyone might have a creative solution. A shot in the dark, but who knows?

Thanks!

Thanks -- that's what I figured. Unfortunately, I don't know anything about metalwork and welding, so it's probably not worth it for me to fix, not now anyway. My wife will just have to deal with the door closing on her legs -- an incentive for her to drive ...

Molly's got that problem, too. I gather that the two bolts you used to hold the bracket in place clear the door-brake bolts. But now I have to remove the kick panel, etc... I was going to get Kenny at Master Crafters to fix this, along with a host of other little things, but he doesn't seem to have the time to deal with my car. Anyway, thanks!
