Hi, I have a upvc front door I need to lift off for a sofa to come in. It has 3 flag hinges but when i come to lift it off the overhang inside stops the door coming off. Do i have to undo all the screws holding the door to the hinge or is there an easier way to dismantle the hinge?

Is there a little grub srcew holding the hinge plate on?? Open the door, possibly on the back of the hinge
There is a small Allen key screw which allows the face plate to come off which reveals all the screws etc that holds the door on.

That'll be the one, take all the hinge caps off, open the door slightly, put something under the door to support the weight, release all the screws, do the top hinge last... Door should then come off, be careful not to loose any parts that may fall off when you take off.
Good luck
