Loose door

THe other day, the driver's side door just stopped working correctly.

It doesn't seem to latch securely and rattles really bad when driving. It doesn't seem to be shutting right.

I looked at the pin that it latches to and it is secure. I also inspected the locking mechanism but no issue is readily apparent.

anyone know how to adjust or repair this or is their a write up?

Thanks Maryland. Will check those out. Don't think it is the stripping because it just happened all of the sudden. if itis the strike, i think I will check the other doors too because the rear passenger seems to be making a noise too..
"the captions" in what photo Steve?
Also, there is a plastic sleeve on the adjustable post (or strike) that can wear.

Kimber you hit it right on the head. There is a plastic sleeve that covers the pin that that lock grabs on the door. It had broken off and shattered allowing the door to move around about an 1/8th of an inch I'm guessing. Sounds terrible like the hinge is busted.

Anyway, for now I wrapped duct tape around the pin to keep the door from rattling around.

Anyone have a part # for the sleeve?
Thanks Steve!
