Re: Clio Mark3 door hinge adjustment

The hinges are not adjustable so loosening them off will have no effect.

You need to jack the door and actually bend the door frame slightly - takes a bit of knack and courage and experience. A good bodybasher would know if there was a problem elsewhere.

Have you tried adjusting the striker plate - sometimes it takes a bit of adjustment in both aspects.
