[DML] Re: Driver door latch issue

This probably will require adjustment of the anchor pins and maybe
also the internal locks. It is a little complicated especially if you
are doing it for the first time. The Workshop Manual has the procedure
for the internal adjustments. The "trick" on the anchor pins is to
have the front AND rear latches both click at the same time. Both also
have to click TWICE and be in the 2nd locking position for the door to
be fully closed. When the door is correctly adjusted you should not be
able to lock it unless both locks are in the 2nd locking position.
Forcing things knocks the adjustments out-of-whack. You may also need
new door seals. If the ones on the car are shot replace them before
adjusting the anchor pins.
