I would try to spray some wd 40 on the catch thats inside the door. If that doesnt work you will have to take off the door panel and then remove the whole unit and out a new one in. I did it on my car once and it wasnt the funnest.

Replaced the tailgate on my 2000 Chrysler grand voyager, new tailgate seems to not "line up" properly. door shuts, locks, Opens. Everything seems to work, just a little out of allingment.... door more to...


If your hinges aren't welded on you can buy some shims from your local auto parts store and shim it behind the hinges to make it right. Sometimes you can just loosen and move the hinges. If you have welded hinges you might have to get a couple of people together and try to bend the hinges. Good luck.

My 2005 dodge caravan sliding doors are very noisy. Too much air and road noise. How can I tighten doors to eliminate noise?


I would check the weather striping first to see if they are worn down. If that doesnt work ur dooors might be tweaked to where they arent sealing off very well. U can try to tighten at hinges but if its not possible the alternative is go to junkyard to get another door!

Doors where hard to close without the weather door seals. But with them on they will not close. The body plates more but not enuff on the cab? I need HELP.


Hi!!
The doors Hinges or Striker need to be adjusted to make up for the weatherstrip thickness. To do this, loosen the hinge-to-door bolts for lateral adjustment only. Loosen the hinge-to-body bolts for both lateral and vertical adjustment.
FRONT DOORS 1kbron_78.gif
REAR DOORS
1kbron_79.gif
BEFORE YOU START:
  • Determine which hinge bolts are to be loosened and back them out just enough to allow movement.
  • To move the door safely, use a padded pry bar. When the door is in the proper position, tighten the bolts to 19-25 ft. lbs. (26-35 Nm) and check the door operation. There should be no binding or interference when the door is closed and opened.
  • Door closing adjustment can also be affected by the position of the lock striker plate. Loosen the striker plate bolts and move the striker plate just enough to permit proper closing and locking of the door.
TO ADJUST ON A: F-150, F-250, Expedition and Navigator
HORIZONTAL AND VERTICAL ADJUSTMENT
  • Loosen the front door hinge to front door bolts.
  • Adjust the front door alignment.
  • Tighten the front door hinge to front door bolts to 19-25 ft. lbs. (26-35 Nm).

FRONT DOOR FORE AND AFT ADJUSTMENT Check the rear door hinge adjustment before adjusting the front door hinge.
  • Remove the front fender.
  • Loosen the front door hinge to body bolts.
  • Adjust the front door alignment to specification.
  • Tighten the front door hinge to body bolts.
  • Install the front fender.

DOOR ADJUSTMENT The following procedure is for performing fore, aft, up, down and tilt adjustments.
  • Remove the door striker.
  • Loosen the bolts only enough to allow for slight door movement.
  • Carefully close and adjust the door until flush with the adjacent body panels.
  • Carefully open the door and tighten the bolts.
  • Re-install and adjust the door striker.
  • Check the door for proper operation and alignment.
STRIKER ADJUSTMENT Mark the position of the striker before loosening.

  • Loosen the striker retaining bolts.
  • Adjust the door striker and tighten the striker retaining bolts.

The driver side door has started to hang down want to make it work properly and get the door to work properly


New door hinges are a dealer item, get another complete set of hinges for that door from a dealer and have them installed and the door aligned at an autobody shop. Don't let the dealer put them in for you. If the door is rusted away where the hinges attach, get another door from a junkyard or off craiglist. If the car itself is rusted away where the hinges attach, have the door welded shut and enter the car per dukes of hazzard or use the passenger side door.

My VW Golf (2001) leaks when it rains, leaks above my sun guard, around the sun roof & rear pannel on the drivers door. Why?


the weather striping sounds like it needs to be replaced they get brittle and dont seal as they should next time you go out to look at it see if there are any cracks or if it is hard and worn it also could have just simply slid and if thats the case most times you can slide it back

I have installed new upper and lower hinges for my 99 Cavalier. The bushings were worn on the old hinges. I have having trouble adjusting the door to shut properly. Should I use a shim? It seems difficult...


most of these cars the only part you can change is the pins if your are bolted on you can adjust loosen the bolts one hinge at a time to adjust... when changing a door with live hinges you should mark ware the old hinges were so you can put the new hinges in the same place
if you car has welded hinges you have to bend the door at the hinge or door support ( its not as hard as it seems)

Driver Door Adjustment


Remember that there is a little play in the hinges, even new ones, enough that just a slight degree of play at the hinge axis will result in several fractions of an inch movement at the latching end of the door. The key here (assuming the lower hinge is still mounted at factory height with respect to latch) is to adjust the angle of the hinge's axis such that the latching mechanism is 1/2 inch higher than the stiker plate BEFORE tightening down the hinge's mounting bolts, then when you remove your support holding up the latch end of the door it should sag back down approx 1/2 inch and line up perfectly with the latch plate. I used to do this on an old '79 Monte Carlo I used to have and even being the smallest of the Monte's, it still had fairly long, heavy doors for back then even and could get the doors to shut/latch perfectly. I own a VUE now-a-days and its door's are featherweights by comparison so they should be fairly easy to adjust and you shouldn't have to tighten the @#$% out of the mounting bolts during the adjustment, just make sure you tighten them good when the alignment turns out correct upon final inspection.
If your adjustment sags again after shutting the door a few times, then you didn't tighten down the hinge mounting bolts enough and will have to go through the adjust procedure again making sure to tighten things up better the 2nd time around.

Door hinge


The door is bolted to the hinges, work out which hinge has most movement in its hinge (Top or lower), this one will need to be moved forward or back to compensate for wear in hinge.
Also take note of door gap along fender (When door is closed) to
prevent it damaging paintwork.
Hope this helps, MMP
