    Default Door issues

    My driver side door has to be slammed several times before it will shut completely. If your just try to shut it like a normal door it will latch but just wiggle around. What is the fix for this hinges? Latch? Adjustment?

    Does the door sag when you open it?

    I think it does slightly. It drops down but not all that noticeable seems to be getting worse too.

    I think that the first thing you should do is adjust the door. There are shims under the hinges. Pull one out of the top and put it in the bottom and see if that fixes it

    Wouldn't happen to be a 2 door would it?

    They are notorious for the top hinge welds failing. Mine was already fixed once in it's prior ownership and is starting to sag again and has the same issue you describe.

    Can still happen on 4 doors, 2 doors are just more prone to it because the doors are longer and heavier. Hope that's not the case for you though. Good Luck
