Door has dropped, awkward to close and won't lock even when all doors locked
I have a Clio 5 door 2003 model mk2 and the door has dropped. It has probably dropped 1 or 2cm or so but basically it now bangs on the actual door hinge thing (the black rubber circular cylinder sort of thing that the locking mechanism locks into which is screwed onto the door frame) that black circular thing has also started to become a little corroded like you can see the wear, itís not smooth itís as if someone has put a tight ring on it and squeezed it and itís imprinted because of the door locking mechanism rubbing on it. Do I make sense? So basically now the door isnít locking either. When the car is locked, all the other doors and the boot are secure but this door just opens as if the car is unlocked and of course you have to push the door in hard for it to shut properly or slam it hard otherwise it just bangs on the black cylinder thing that the locking mechanism goes into... because the door has dropped it doesnít fit onto the black thing and itís sort of misaligned. This probably makes no sense but Iím sure someone will know what Iím talking about. I want to know how much it would cost to fix it by whatever the cheapest solution is?
