  Vehicle must be standing on its wheels when front door adjustment is performed.
  The rear door is correctly adjusted when all shut lines are even when closed. it is not protruding too far inwards or outwards, and when the contours are flush with each other.
  For checking gaps/shut lines refer to → Rep. gr.00.
  After installing or alignment, carry out corrosion protection measures on hinges and screws/bolts.

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.
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.
