Re: Door has dropped, awkward to close and won't lock even when all doors locked
Hello and wellcome,m
You dont really indicate if you are "have a go lee".
mean whether or not you do your own car maintenance.
If you dont, go to a local competent mechanic you use, to determine if hinges/pins are worn and need to be replaced or:
If door can be adjusted to compensate for hinge wear,since you say its dropped 1-2cm at the trailing edge..
Itshould be possible to adjust the catch or striking plate so the door will lock properly again, but if trying that diy, a manual,such as a haynes one would be usefull.
Is there play in the hinges..can you lift the trailing edge of the door up the 1-2cm and then it drops down again?..or does the door close properly if you lift it by the handle from the outside as it closes?
Currently in coup's garage:
RM III coupe 1.5dci FVT,Audi TT Mk1 ,a bike and too much rubbish.
