Re: Megane door hinge adjustment?

Yeh as posted before,
door adjustment is tricky.
My coupe I had adjusted under guarantee as the drivers door was a bit off, not actual hinge wear.
It has to be done in 3 planes and like RW says coupes have long doors.
Striker adjustment is ok ,but if the door is now offline when its shut something may need adjustment at the hinge end.
My meg you can only adjust on the "door " side of the hinge but there isnt much scope for lifting the bottom edge of the door,only alignment,but small adjustments at the hinge end are magnified a lot at the trailing end.

Without pin replacement, if you could get the door to hang correctly when closed and the hinge end bolts are just loose enough to allow minor door movement, that "might" do it , and then retighten.

Currently in coup's garage:
RM III coupe 1.5dci FVT,Audi TT Mk1 ,a bike and too much rubbish.
