    I think I read on here before the best method of fixing the front doors dropping was to open them and jack them up with a trolley jack? Any other methods??

    the jack methods or the 13mm socket in the hinge and shut the door. or remove the inner trims and adjust the door on the bolts.

    both my front doors dropped.
    I replaced the hinges one side and adjusted the other side.

    both worked, don't agree with the socket or jack method though.

    to adjust the doors you need to find the bolts for the hinges inside the car. behind the kick panel and behind dash.

    the 13mm socket way, I think is put a 13mm socket in the hinge and shut hte door.
    I think thats it. Bend the hinge/door for it to fit.
