Re: Megane door hinge adjustment?

Have you tried lifting the door up and down holding it at the far edge to see if there's excessive play in the hinge pins?
Convertibles/2-door cars have longer heavier doors and this puts added strain on the hinges and are more prone to dropping.
You may need to insert shims/packing pieces under the hinge to correct the alignment if the pins are ok.

Don't take without giving in return
