Adjusting door

Adjusting shut lines
To be able to adjust gaps correctly, bolts -2-, -3-, -6- and -7- on B-pillar must be loosened.
–  The B-pillar lower trim must be removed for bolts -3 and 7-.
Adjusting for flush fitting
In order to adjust flushness correctly, bolts -5- and -9- must be loosened.
Use door alignment tool -3320- with appropriate bit for this.
  Note
Other measures, such as raising the rear door, will prove pointless. Subsequent pressure from above will cause the door to sack again at the back.
