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

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

With the door open loosen the three bolts that hold the rear of the door onto the arm. Find out if it is striking high or low and gently move the door in the right direction a little bit at a time. Also check the bottom track for any obstructions.

You would need to explain what you mean by 'adjust'. Doors really aren't made for that... if it's in need of 'adjustment', then you probably have a faulty component which needs to be repaired or replaced.

A few years ago an Andersen rep. adjusted my patio swing door and it is now sticking a little again. How can I adjust it?

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

Because back then, all you did was parallel park so you would slide out of the passenger side and out the passenger side door since it was to the curb. Then you could lock your door and not be in traffic.

AnswerAll you need to adjust the door is a t-45 torx socket. On the inside of the door jamb you will see a bolt that is called the door striker. loosen the blot and adjust it according to witch way the door needs to go. Tighten and then test fit the door. Make adjustments also may need to adjust the door itself probably up I'm guessing , the hinge bolts are located behind the fender . you may need to loosen the top or the fender to gain access to those bolts. or you can try to adjust the door with a door adjustment tool , many body shops will do this for you nearly free of charge.

yes, you need to close drivers door, open passenger door and use central locking button, then close passenger door and use key.

Depending on what year, make and model you have, your local auto parts store can sell you pin and bushing kits to rebuild the door hinges. More than likely this is the reason the door has dropped.

To fix a door that has dropped, first check all hinges. Replace screws of those hinges that are sagging and add shims between the hinge and doorjamb.
