Adjustment

Glass Adjustment

  

Check the glass run channel for damage or deterioration, and replace it if necessary.

1.

Remove the front door trim.

(Refer to Front Door - "Front Door Trim")

2.

Remove the front door window glass mounting hole plug (A).

3.

Carefully move the front door window glass (A) until the glass mounting bolts are visible, then loosen them.

4.

Check that the glass moves smoothly.

Door Striker Adjustment

  

Make sure the door latches securely without slamming it. If necessary adjust the striker (A): The striker nuts are fixed. The striker can be fine adjusted up or down, and in or out.

1.

Loosen the screws (B) just enough for the striker to move.

Tightening torque :

(B) : 16.7 - 21.6 N·m (1.7 - 2.2 kgf·m, 12.3 - 15.9 lb·ft)

2.

Tap on the striker with a plastic hammer to adjust the striker. The striker will not move much, but will give some adjustment.

3.

Hold the outer handle out, and push the door against the body to be sure the striker allows a flush fit. If the door latches properly, tighten the screws and recheck.

Door Position Adjustment

  

After installing the door, check for a flush fit with the body, then check for equal gaps between the front, rear, and bottom, door edges and the body. Check that the door and body edges are parallel. Before adjusting, replace the mounting bolts.

1.

Check that the door and body edges are parallel.

2.

Place the vehicle on a firm, level surface when adjusting the doors.

3.

Adjust at the hinges (A) :

Loosen the door mounting bolts slightly, and move the door in and out until it aligns flush with the body.

Loosen the hinge mounting bolts slightly, and move the door backward and forward, or up and down as necessary to equalize the gaps.

Place a shop towel on the jack to prevent damage to the door when adjusting the door.

Tightening torque :

(B) : 21.6 - 26.5 N·m (2.2 - 2.7 kgf·m, 15.9 - 19.5 lb·ft)

4.

Grease the pivot portions of the hinges indicated.

Check for water leaks.
