There's a hex-head screw at the top hinge. Remove it and the door just lifts off the lower pin.
Very simple.

Sure looks flimsy to me.
I'd go with a brass plate rather than this.

However, I roughed up the plastic hinge (you know they have silicon mold release as molded, right?) and filled the voids with 2 part epoxy. Seems firm enough but you have to remember, the plastic bottom strip is flimsy as well.

I'm still convinced the best way to avoid a catastrophic failure to the new door, like we experienced on the old, is to not store anything on the door.
Unfortunately, my better half disagrees (I'm waiting for another failure).  Cry
But, as I'm only the fixer, what do I know?

Regarding the extenders:
Make sure they are tightened to the tire's steel stem as they'll often start to leak after a while as the seal loses elasticity.

Some companies are so screwed up even Superman would slow down.

I place a warning tag on the steering wheel for things like antenna down, cabinets shut, bathroom and shower doors secured, etc.
Nothing quite like making a corner and hearing a loud bang to get your attention.

The best thing you can do to avoid a broken hinge is to remove the shelves on the door so you can't store anything on it.

Continually mentioning it is like trying to end a conversation with a question.

Sparky,
My pads have lasted 2 years so far and still look good. The 3M taper is actually pretty common.

Yessir, I did. Using 3M permanent adhesive tape.
Don't have to worry about alignment very much that way.

Sparky,
Rather than putting foam pads for the antenna on the roof, I suggest putting the foam pads on the bottom of the antenna where they will contact the roof when the antenna is down.

Regardless of window type, they are nice.
