How do you adjust door striker on a 89 bronco 11 xlt driver side?
Try loosing the bolts that hold the hinge to the body. Just enough to raise or lower the door. Then tighten and adjust accordingly. You can adjust the striker bolt to get a tighter closing door. You loosen it and push it further back for a tighter fit or pull it out some for a looser fit. Hope this helps.
Adjust the striker if door otherwise aligned ok.
Loosen Nadar pin and move, BUT DO NOT REMOVE
There are a couple of adjustments. The hinge bolts can be loosened to move the door up and down, also the striker bolts can be loosened to move the striker up and down along with in and out.
You can adjust the striker pin on the door post with a torx socket. Also, if there is too much slop in the door hinges that can cause problems. The hinges can be repaired with door hinge pin and bushing kits from your local auto parts store.
Yes--But loosen only DO NOT REMOVE COMPLETELY
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… Read More

1997 Saturn sl1 driver-side door won't close My husband has to slam it 8 times to get it to close. Is it cheaper to replace the door or get the door fixed Car has 175K mile. Don't want to spend a lot?
Check that the door seals and door card are seated properly (FREE). Oil the door lock, make sure the outer and inner handles spring return to the closed position after use (ALMOST FREE). Adjust the door lock striker plate (FREE).

The door ajar switch on a 1993 Mercury Topaz is located in the door latch. The switch is triggered by the top hook of the latch. If the problem is having to frequently slam the door a second time to make the seat belt work, try to adjust the striker bolt attached to the door frame up a bit. Works for me.
The hinges on a 1992 Chevy S-10 are on the side. If any adjustments are needed for the door they can be made through there.
put a new latch in If the car has been setting for a while I would start by spraying some wd40 on the latch mechanism ,if that don't help try adjusting the striker and the door alignment Get the door open, pull the panel, adjust latch manually to diagnose or if replacement is needed
On many vans/cars I have seen the latch on the door itself sometimes get tumbled into the shut position on accident. In most cases all you need is a screw driver to put into the latch hole on the door itself while pulling on the door handle simply flip the latch back open. If this is not the case please clarify your question. The door jam has a male stiker the door latch is female… Read More
1990 Lincoln Town Car you recently replace the driver's door striker where the door locks to the car frame After replacing this striker the Door Ajar Light now stays on Any help is appreciated?
The striker adjustment is very sensitive. The door ajar switch is in the latch mechanism on the door and if the striker is not adjusted perfectly, the switch will not function. My 1997 has a double latch, yours probably does also. Try adjusting the striker closer to the pilar. That should tighten it up enough to make the door ajar switch function. If not, just keep adjusting it until you get the light to go… Read More
The door striker on a 95 F150 is also a bolt, easily adjusted with a socket wrench using a Torx T-45 bit, available at Sears, home improvement stores, hardware stores, auto parts stores and many other places. The bit fits right in the end of the striker, and you loosen it by turning counter-clockwise as you would with any other bolt. Loosen the striker just enough to shift it and the guide around, but don't… Read More

How do you adjust the passenger door on a 1998 Suburban The door seems to be a little low in closing so latch hits the striker bar?
On the frame side(not the door) where the door latches, slightly loosen the screws just enough so that the latching mechanism will move up or down. Keep doing fine adjustments without tightening the latch until your satisfied with the closing of the door. Then tighten the screws securly.
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.
You would need to remove the inside panel of the door first to unplug the electrical wiring to the door. Then there are bolts on the hinges you can remove to take the door off. When you install the new door you wil need to adjust it so the latch meets up with the door jam.
Try checking the latching assembly on the door. If it snaps shut before the door colses, it keeps the door from closing. With the door open, look at the assembly while pulling the door handle to open. Use a screw driver and snap the latch that holds the door shut down. It should pop back and reset. Worn out door hinge pins and bushings lead to poor alignment and damage to latch and striker pin.
Nader pin is the pin in the door jam that the door latches on to, to close. It is also called a door striker pin.
Almost all modern commercially produced door handles can be installed on either hand. The internal mechanism, known as the striker, flips over and is identical top and bottom. Door handles have spindles that slip through a square slot in the striker mechanism so that when the knob is turned, or button pushed, the striker is withdrawn, allowing the door to open. Deadbolts are similarly constructed.
yes ,but the interior door panels are different
Have you tryed to put a screwdriver in the "hole" where the door striker would go and as you pull the handle up push the screwdriver out. As if you were going throught the motions of the door opening but the screwdriver acts as the striker.

the door striker needs adjusted along with possibly the latch mechanism.
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… Read More

Why car door on driver passenger side unlock with key but won't open from out side but will on inside'can't get in1999 Aurora Oldsmobile?
I'm having same problem. Have narrowed it down to worn door catch; now have to find a way to adjust it for being worn. Only driver's door acting up, because of most use.
I would get a philips head screw driver. Then I would locate the screw on the headlight housing. I would then use the screwdriver on the screw as I needed.
The only way I found is to rotate the door latch that closes around the striker so the truck thinks the door is closed

How do you adjust the driver side window on a 1993 Nissan 300zx to prevent air and water leaking inside?
Over time the rubber along the edge of the window will shrink. Open the door and rub some Vaseline on the rubber. Leave the door cracked and leave the Vaseline on there over night. In the morning wipe the Vaseline off with a clean dry rag. The Vaseline expands the rubber causing a perfect seal again. If the car has been wrecked in that area then you will need to take the door apart and… Read More
The fuel filter is located on the inner side of the frame on the driver's side. Creep under about where the front of the driver's door is and you will see it mounted in a bracket which is bolted to the frame. The fuel line is attached on both ends with a plastic clip. Check this for leaks.

There are a couple of screws that will allow you to adjust the position of the window glass on the driver side. In order to get to them, you will have to remove the door panel and water shield. At that point the screws can be loosened and the window adjusted to move properly. There should be a link to the left or below this answer that has some pictures of where these screws are.

How do you remove the driver side door panel of a 1998 VW Beetle to replace the door handle cable?
The bolts go into a plate in the door and the door post, not solid holes in either. The plate will move up and down, side to side a little bit. Loosen the bolts and adjust as needed.
Remove the striker post. Remove the fender so you can easily get at the adjustors with the door closed. Align the door with a helper even with the rocker & back. tighten bolts. Put striker in but not tight. Close door slowly but don't let it latch, then open to allow it to pull it into position (up/down) then tighten. Replace fender-you're done.
