Door Hindge Question

Hey guys,

Has anyone had this same problem as me? My drivers side door seems to be out of allignment and i'm thinking its just from normal wear & tear on the door hindge's... Anyone ever come across this in their WK's?

I'm thinking of taking the front fendor off and having a friend tighten up the bolts while i hold the door up so it lines up well... I've also been reading online and people are saying to replace the door hinge pins.... any thoughts?

Re: Door Hindge Question

here is what I saw:

_________________________

I had an issue with two bent hinges on pass door. Took to body shop up in Brighton. They installed two new hinges, repainted where door hit the fender, aligned eveything. Works great. Mine is 2005, new hinge was redesigned with a heavy duty spring. Damage was due to wind blowing door open. Insurance covered it under comprehensive. Was like $1300 total.

I would recommend two new hinges.

Re: Door Hindge Question

If it's a matter of it not lining up right when it's shut, you can adjust the striker bar (and possibly the mating latch assy on the door) to compensate for some sag/misalignment, etc...this is probably not an issue in this case, but a 'fwiw', for others. my rear door was driving me crazy with the extra gap sticking out and this helped a lot (plus on other cars I've had).
