Rear door not closing

Hi All, me again. I am sure soon you will get bored of my whinging and kick me out. BUT before you do, I have seen a number of espaces where the back door seems to have sunk a bit. Mine strikes the bumber and as a result is very stiff to open. While at the breaker, I removed a set of hinges which I popped on this weekend. It has made no difference what so ever. I can see any bending on the hinges, or on the roof where they mount, or on the door. The door definitly sits about 5mm lower than the roof line. I have seen a number of cars with this, but then I have seen some without. Is there a fix, it is almost like I need to add a 5mm spacer under the hinge? Any ideas?

Currently in russeleion's garage:
Escort 1.8 16v and totally useless Espace 2.2td
