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.

Tightening torque : 16.7 - 21.6 N*m (1.7 - 2.2 kgf*m, 12.3 - 15.9 lb*ft)

  1. Tap on the striker with a plastic hammer to adjust the striker. The striker will not move much, but will give some adjustment.
  2. 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.

After installing the door, check for a flush fit with the adjacent body panels, 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.
