Default Front door hinges

Would anybody be able to confirm if the front door hinge pin has a bush or sleeve around it, just bought new pins as the lower one has a lot of wiggle leading to the door dropping.
Don't see any difference with the new pin, so is there a bush missing or the hinge itself worn out by the pin?

Peugeot changed the hinge design at some point not sure which the 407 has older style had the hinge in 2 halves welded to body and door and the pin held the door on.

Newer hinges are made differently and bolt to both body and door.

Older style did have a small insert not actually sure about new style never needed to look closely.

Thanks, these bolt on, so I'll guess I'll have to buy new hinges. I can't believe they made the hinge softer than the pin and will wear out first.....
