Driver's side door adjustment on a 2000 Chevy Blazer

My driver's door needs adjusting, it does not close tightly which allows air and water to come through along the door and the upright along the windshield. How can I adjust it to close tighter.

Check your door bushings in the door hinge these probably need replacing. if you can lift up on door and feel play they are wore out. common issue on these if not you can put a wood block betwwen bottom of door and body and push on top of door to bend it a little to close top tighter

    best way to get the top tighter is to twist the door like i said do this with window down prop door open and push the top in some this will "warp" the door a little and make it close tighter. hinges are welded on so no adjustment there.this is way i have fixed many with your problem as long as all weather stripping is in tact and good

The hinges can be moved very little backwards, and if that doesn't work you could always do what I did take it to a body shop and have them weld it put some shims in the hinges.

Driver door on my 1997 Lin Towncar will not close tight un less a windown is cracked open ( any window). What is my problem?

The latch striker may be adjusted just a bit too tight. What is happening is that when you attempt to close the door, the air pressure inside the vehicle resists the door closing. That is why opening a window solves the problem. There is no back pressure to fight the door closing. If the latch is adjusted properly, then you just need to put more oomph into closing the door.

How do you adjust the drivers door, improper closing, on a 2000 Chevy Silverado 1500?

If it is closing inproperly, open door. Lift up on bottom of door near latch. If there is movement the hinge pins need to be replaced. If there is no up & down movement adjust stiker bar on pillar that door closes onto, either up, down or in or out, depending on how it closes.

2000 Mercury marquis dome light comes on in middle of night and will run battery down. What is problem? Thanks

It appears that one of the door operated switches is making contact even though the door is closed. This is indicated by the interior light coming on. It could mean one of the door catches is slightly out of adjustment allowing door to sit slightly away from body. Try checking each door, and at same time observing dome light, for a loose fit by pushing the closed door in, especially the driver's which gets the most use. There should be only a little movement as the sealing rubbers are squeezed a little more. Adjust catch if necessary. If door catches are tight then it may be that the rubber pad attached to the door that pushes on the door switch button has been compressed slightly and is allowing switch to make contact. Check rubber for an indentation and either put some packing behind it or replace.

Adjust dr side door

If you can grab the end of the door and lift on,and there's movement, what you need is the door hings bushing, most all auto parts sell this as a kit, cost about $6.00, the only adjustment you will have will be at the striker bolt, that the part where the door latch, latches to, to hold the door close, it unscrews and it will have some adjustment, but not much.There not adjustment for door hing.

Adjusting sliding door closure on 2005 dodge caravan

The seals allways let some in, I just looked and mine has 4 3 or 4 mm holes to the rear emptying into the rocker panel. If you are worried about the lower rubber do a pinch test with some A4 paper, close the door with a sheet of paper held where the seal is and when the door is closed see if it is held, check somewhere you can see better to find how hard it pinches. I do not reccomend adjusting anything as if the lines are correct it must be right and they are none to easy to put right, I hope this solves it for you.

Front driver door rattles and the door open light comes on

You will have to adjust the door lock catch which is fitted on the body , loosen the two screws and push it a little inwards , close the door after adjsuting and see if it rattles , if so repeat the adjustment.
Please also check the door hinghes of they are ok! Probabely it may have some play if so thn you will have to replace them.
Hope this helps!

Driver's side door not latching / closing

pull the outside handle and unlatch the latching assembly by hand by insertins a screwdriver where the striker would normally be if the door were closed - and pry out.

You can adjust the striker by loosening the bolts, and moving it in toward the cabin.

If the door itself is droopy, adjustments are made by the hinge by loosening the bolts and lifting up or down.

Multiple attempts will be necessary to get it just right.

Dont get frustrated if it doesnt fit properly in the 1st or second attempt.
Good Luck!!

93 mustang car door doesn't

Sounds like the door may be out of adjustment. Check first that there nothing is getting in the way of the door closing area such as the seat belt, and that the door seals are in the correct position. If all checks ok there, Then the door striker witch located at the "B" pillar ( body area direct behind door ) needs adjustment. I recommend finding someone with experience doing this as it will require the use of a impact driver to loosen the adjuster But if you have access to this tool then MARKING where the adjuster is before adjustment is a good idea as a starting point of reference. The adjuster need only be slightly loosened to adjust and will move not only in and out but up and down. good luck and have a happy holiday season Kam
