[DML] Re: Door won't close property

It sounds like the door or the anchor pins need to be adjusted. This
is not really a good job to learn on. Try to find another owner in
your area who has done this adjustment before. If you can't we can
talk you through it if you have some mechanical ability and some
metric open-end/box wrenches. Start by figuring out EXACTLY what is
hitting and when. Does the door hit the underbody or is it hitting the
anchor pins? Do you have the door guides? If it is hitting the anchor
pins, is it hitting on the head or are they lining up into the center
of the latches? This is a hard procedure to help by remote control. A
good way to start is to remove the offending anchor pin and adjusting
the remaining one until it is perfect then reinstalling the other one
and trying to get it perfect too.
