Just unscrew it with a torx socket from the frame, screw new one in, close door a little bit, and look in there to see if it aligns with the door latch.

How do you adjust the tail gate to stop the annoying rattle when driving?


Most rattles are due to the back door not closing tight enough. There is a lock/striker that the door lock assembly latches to. Usually the striker/latch is bolted to the rear floor/bumper area and the screws/bolts securing it can be loosened and the striker/latch moved forward and retightened which in turn will cause the door to be tighter stopping any rattles. You may also have a rattle inside the door assembly itself or loose paneling causing this issue

Broken car door striker


Mo, since you know the part that you need, get a new one instead of removing the seat etc which is more work.

1989 s10 blazer the door handle broke off we went threw the window to unlock the door. We lost the small spring that unlatches the door from the frame. I got the door finally open with a screw driver....


the interior trim will come off to gain access to the lost part. Get a telescopic magnet which will retreive this part. If it is the striker the latch hits and keeps the door safley shut That is what I think your refering to. The striker bolts to the B pillar which keeps the door shut. Also the striker should cost no more than $15 to 20 $$ to replace. Maybe less

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

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.

Door adjustment for a 96 f350 dropped about 1/2"


Here's the solution: You might want to park it under a tree and tie a rope to the door to pull it up when loosened.
ADJUSTMENT Fig. 1: Door hinge adjustment 84920001.gif
Fig. 2: Rear door hinge adjustment, F-350 Crew Cab 84920002.gif
NOTE: Loosen the hinge-to-door bolts for lateral adjustment only. Loosen the hinge-to-body bolts for both lateral and vertical adjustment.
  1. Determine which hinge bolts are to be loosened and back them out just enough to allow movement.
  2. To move the door safely, use a padded prybar. When the door is in the proper position, tighten the bolts to 19–25 ft. lbs. (25.5–34.5 Nm) and check the door operation. There should be no binding or interference when the door is closed and opened.
  3. 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.

My driver side door rattles on 1993 ford bronco but it shuts.


There should be a gray plastic bushing sleeve on the striker post. These wear out, break and fall off. Compare it to the passenger side as they last a lot longer. Normally you can get a pair of replacements for 5 bucks in the HELP section at auto parts stores. The striker bolt is something like a torx T40 or T45 and just comes out like a regular bolt.

Trace around the bolt location with a sharpie before you remove it so you can reinstall it at the exact original location.

If the latch is badly worn you may have to move the bolt in some to tighten up the door when it is closed.

Doors are very hard to shut on my 1988 Dodge ram


I'm not sure what you were told but the (knobs) are the strikers. Do the latches in the door line up with the strikers? Do the doors hang straight? You might need to adjust the hinges or the striker. If it all does line up then you might need a new latch.
