Renault Trafic (2010) Nearside rear door misaligned

Hi guys, hoping someone can help.

I was loading some bits into the back of my Trafic today and a strong gust of wind caught the nearside rear barn door, which prevented the door from shutting.

I've since taken all of the neccessary body parts off to access where the door hinges are bolted to the body of the van, and tried realigning the door so it meets the catch, but still no joy.

I'm worried that the force of the wind may have bent the body where the door hinge is attached to the van.

Anybody got any ideas?

Thanks in advance,

A photo may help to see what the problem is. Does the door slant at an angle say on the top & bottom edges or is it failing to fully push into the aperture?
Have you taken the hinges off the door itself?
You may have to slacken all the fixings and jiggle everything around until the door lines up again.
I would think the door itself may be the weakest part so could that have bcome distorted at the hinge points?

Don't take without giving in return
