    Drivers door and passenger door dropped

    Hi does anyone know how to adjust the front doors mine have both dropped, the swage line is also out and they are both quite close to the wing at the bottom.

    The hinges are welded, so they won't have moved. It's more than likely the striker plate that's moved. You need to adjust this.

    And this will bring the door back up into place?

    In theory yes. But you need to take it easy when adjusting. Does the door feel like it catching when you open and shut the door?

    Check whether the door drops / raises when you shut it or whether it stays the same. You may not feel the catching due to the seals, but you may see it when opening and closing the door.

    setting a door is very difficult to explain on a forum.....
