    What year I can't remember? But if it's and early 4th gen they used to use a weak tab of metal to hold the door closed. Over time they would bend down until it would just pop open. I used to have to bend the tab back up to get my 95 glove box to stay shut. Slamming it made it worse. I eventually just emptied it out and locked it so it would'nt be used anymore. Don't even get me started on the also shitty design of the consol lid which just simply broke off.. But yeah you can bend the tap up a little and that will hold for a while but it will do it again. Maybe someone will chime in on a place that sells the "fix" or knows of some other way..

    My bad. Mine in the Camaro is a glued together frame. The only way I could see doing it if yours is like mine would be to somehow warm it up then twist and hold it till it cools down. Or replace the door. Are the rubber stoppers missing?

    Ours is also off just a bit. I believe it is the left side that hangs open just enough to be noticeable. I assume that it is simply warped and have not taken the time to inspect it. Going to do some interior work here in a couple of days and will look it over then.
