Hello. I have here an adjustment procedure for the sliding doors on your van I can upload for you if you would like?
Ok. What happened is the hinges have gotten sticky and started to bind up. When that happens more and more force is required to open and close the doors which over time bends the metal. The only real fix for this is new hinges, but if you would like to take pictures and upload them, I can verify that with certainty.
Does it seem like this is likely the case in your situation?
There is not an adjustment procedure for these doors. Only sliding doors. There is however a procedure to replace the hinges. When the hinges bind up, and you close the door the hinges won't swing in as much as they should and the door will not be aligned. There will be a large gap between the door and the door jam on the side with the hinges. Is there a large gap between the door and the door jam?
Try lubricating the hinges really well with wd 40 and see if you can't get them to move freely. Let me know the outcome.
Thanks. I look forward to hearing back.
