Door Adjustment Procedure WK2

Hi, does anybody have a door adjustment procedure for the WK2 2012 build? I've tried to adjust the rear doors, but there appeared to be no adjustment possible (this doesn't seem right ). I ended up removing all four nuts from the four studs that go into the upper/lower hinges. The upper hinge had two holes - the upper hole was the same size as the stud, i.e. no adjustment. The upper hinge lower hole had +/- 2mm adjustment. The lower hinge upper hole also had +/- 2mm adjustment. The lower hinge lower hole only had vertical adjustment. But given that the upper hinge upper hole had no adjustment the door did not move at all! Am I doing something wrong?

Also, the door striker plate is not adjustable. The two retaining bolts go through holes in the body which have the same diameter as the bolts, i.e. no adjustment. I'm totally confused. Many forum members are saying that the bodyshop was able to fix alignment issues - did they have to drill out bolt holes in the body/hinges?
