RE: [DML] Door pops open while driving?!?!

Yes, I have seen this happen before.  A fellow DMA member from NYC had a car
where if she drove over 55mph, the doors would unlatch.

I believe the fix was simply to adjust the striker pins.

Subject: [DML] Door pops open while driving?!?!

Hey guys I got my delorean back after being in storage for the last couple
years. While driving it back to portland I had a new issue with the
passenger door partially coming open while driving.

It seems the road vibration or soemthing slowly works one of the door
latches loose and the door partially pops open. The latch that opens is the
one nearest the door handle. The forward door latch remains latched thank
goodness so the door only partially opens about an inch. 

I had to pull over on the highway and reclose the passenger door 3 times on
my 800 mile road trip. 

Has anyone ever heard of this happening before? Wheres the best place to
start troubleshooting?

thanks for any help.
