Loose door

2332 Views 12 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  Believer45
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?

These doors are fairly heavy and wear out the hinge where the pin rides. There are pin/bushing kits for these at most any auto parts store.

Also, there is a plastic sleeve on the adjustable post (or strike) that can wear.

Just so you know, factory ford door hinges are EXPENSIVE.
