Most likely your hinge bushings are gone, buy a replacement set at any parts store and follow the instructions.

How do you adjust the passenger door on an EF Falcon Sedan 1995 which has dropped?

This is a fairly easy thing to do in words, but to actually do it is a bit challenging, if the door dropped, you should adjust the top hinge where it meets the pillar by loosening it and have a friend lift the rear of the door and retighten it, this is a very precise job, a few millimeters off and the door will not close, if there is no adjustment (the bolt holes should be oval), you will have to remove the door hinges and use shims between the hinges and the door, but this will mean the door is bent or the body is bent. Good luck

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
