Get the rubber door boot loose, reach inside to where the door latch is and remove the 2 screws holding it in. Then put the screw back in but add a washer on the inside before you screw it back into the latch. Do this on both screws and it will set the latch further in the thickness of the washers. If one doesn't work you can try 2 but make sure the door can still lock or the unit won't run.

    There is a spring at the bottom center of the door gasket. Stretch that out and a wire will come off from around the gasket you can then pull the gasket off and reach in. Be sure you get the gasket back on all the way and the wire right or it will leak. Good luck.

2000 gran marquis door closes but rattles like it is not fully closed. Is there an adjusment?


There's a catch that's bolted onto the door frame of the car. Loosen up the bolts and adjust the catch, re tighten the bolts and check. This may take a couple of try's before you find the best position to eliminate any slop so the door secures without any rattles. Check the latch on the door for wear, this may also contribute to the door rattling if you're unsuccessful after making an adjustment on the catch.

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

Leaking door


Open the door and look inside at the lower left corner where the door gasket ends. See if there is any type of obstruction or foreign object in that corner. It doesn't take much to cause a door leak. Some door latches can be adjusted tighter. Look at the top door latch system and see if has 2 screws in it. You can sometimes loosen the screws and push the latch inward slightly and re-tighten the screws. That will make the door tighter when latched. Not all dishwashers have adjustable latch systems.

I have a Miele W404SB WPS washing machine. Water leaks out of the door during the washing cycle. Do you have any suggestions how I can stop this. Regards, Teresa Rooney


1. Make sure the washer is level first, with a small torpedo level at the top center edge of the washer ,check at the front and one side. If its not, adjust the 2 front level foot adjusters (at the front of the unit where they touch the floor) to level the washer.
2. If level is ok, check the door seal and replace if cracked or torn or old and hardened.
3. If ok, look at the latch on the door and the washer. Some have an adjustment for how far the door closes to latch. There will be 2 screws or small bolts you will loosen to slide the lever or the latch plate to adjust so the door closes tighter.
4. If ok, then the water level sensor will have to be replaced by a qualified tech.

Wind noise from drivers door. goes away if I grab top of door like a clamp. can latch be adjusted to pull door tighter?


Most likely the brass bushings on the door hinge needs to be replaced. It's common part that needs to be replaced, it's simple job and you can buy the replacement bushing at Auto Zone and they can give you the step by step instructions to getting the job done. Good luck and keep me posted for any other question.

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!
