  7. Bodywork
    My driver's side door has just dropped about an inch and needs to be pushed up and in to close it. I looked at the top hinge and pin which seem solid and unmoving but there is movement as though the inside of the door is coming away from the hinge. Is this repairable or do I need a new door.
