    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.

    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.....
