[DML] Re: Door latch/rod issues

Hi Derek,

You mention a couple issues with your doors, and the first you 
mention is that the front latch is not latched securely (the front 
of the door moves when hitting bumps).

This seems to typically be a striker pin adjustment issue. I suspect 
the front latch is only on the first latched position and is not in 
the second position. Sometimes when the door behaves as yours, 
owners will mistakenly adjust the striker pin inwards thinking it 
will hold the door more securely against the doorjamb.

The striker pin often needs to move outward a little bit in order to 
be out far enough to trip the second latch position.
