    Adjusting doors on an S14

    So a job I have put off for long enough is fixing the doors having dropped a little.

    Can anyone give me an idiot's guide please

    Cheers

    open the door, loosen the bolts on the hinges a bit then grab back of door and yank upwards. tighten bolts/yank until desired fitment achieved. or just rag **** out of the door in an upward motion without loosening the door hinges. option B is how its done on production lines/ real world.

    Haha. Real world sounds scary on an S Bod nowadays.

    Is that the bolts on the body or the door itself. My brain says the body but just checking.

    i think the hinges are the same left to right if you know anyone with a spare passenger door with good hinges.
    but you would loosen the bolts holding the hinges to the bodyshell on the A post under the wing.

    So would that really mean a wing off job?
