    Door Alignment

    I have a question. What's the best way to align the door? Mine was rubbing against the top of my door near the side mirror, so I fixed the fender where it had been jacked up. But now I have the problem of it almost rubbing the fender where the vents are. How can I fix this? I've loosened the hinge and moved it back and forth and it hasn't helped. I've searched and I can't find an answer anywhere

    Have you tried adjusting the front fender?

    I have this problem and it is the front fender. i haven't mess with it. If you door clearance and/or gap is the same by the handle side then your door is fine, it is the fender.

    Up near the side mirror, there is a bolt that if you loosen, you can move the front fender in or out.

    If it isn't, it could be the pins. But then you'd have trouble closing the door as well.

    Yeah I don't have trouble closing the door. If I ever did have that problem, is it just a swap out of the pin in the hinge? Or is changing it out more detailed than that?
