Before you try to make adjustments, check the hinge pins and bushings. When they wear out the door drops. Depending on the vehicle, your local auto parts store should have pin and bushing kits available. Replacng the worn pins and bushings will restore the door alignment back to normal.

How do you realign a car door?

you can realing a car doorby removing the door form the body of the car. then have two friends hold the door up to where you want it to be then carfuly reatach the door using all of the right tools and right parts. the door should be put in the right way and not bee crooked if all of the bolts and attachments are put on right and tight. Or you can try this, put the door back on, but do not tighten completely, tighten it just enough for the door to hold on it's own as well as you to be able to adjust the door up or down as needed without the help of others. See, the idea is to be able to adjust the door as needed, up, or down then closing it gently at first so to see that the door is aligned and closing properly. if not, then push the door, either up, or down then close it again. You may have to do this a few times before you are satisfied, (Besides this it how the professionals align their doors after a repair.)

How do you adjust a door on Ford Focus 2004?

Open the door of the vehicle one whatever side you need to adjust. There are 3 bolts that connect the car and the door, I have a 2003 and they are 1/2 inch bolts. To adjust the door in and out use the bolt connected to the door, if it needs to move front or back use the bolts connected to the car. Open the door and get a jack and put a piece of wood on it (so you don't scratch the door) and jack the door up just enough to release tension on the door. Then loosen the bolts for whatever way you need to adjust.Good Luck

How do you adjust car side mirrors?

This is my way and it eliminates blindspots without the use of any other add ons. First, adjust your rear view mirror and make a note of what you see in each corner behind you. Then adjust your outside door mirrors to show what you saw into the corner of the mirror closet to you. It takes a little getting use to this and not all door mirrors will adjust to this point, but if you can, it is great!

How do you adjust the back doors on a 2001 VW Passat?

Open the door you wish to adjust and look at the body part of the car to which where the door latch mechanism attaches. It is a silver slab that has a U shaped piece to it. This is the striker and you must adjust it to allow the door to close flush to the car again. It will require a torx screwdriver (it looks like a star), and I believe it is size T25. Loosen both torx screws and reposition the striker a bit in, since the door is sticking out and you want to make the door flush. You can try putting on some Loc-Tite that basically hardens the screw into place so you won't have to do this again.
