Chevrolet Repair Questions? Ask a Chevy Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Attach a picture with the paperclip icon but if the door is hitting and not closing try putting a screwdriver in the place is closes and pull toward the inside of the door while you work the inside door release handle.
Let me know what questions you have
So is the door hitting hard on the striker?
If that is the case try bumping the striker down a hit or two and see if it closes normally. You can also tighten the hinges and see if that helps.
Looks like bodywork is required with the pictures you have posted so I will OPT OUT as I don't do that.
Sorry I could not help
Hello Im Chris and I will assist you. Are the torx bolts tight. The chisel is holding it out.
If they dont tighten enough to hold the striker in place i would suggest you drill small holes and put screws in there. You must first calculate where it needs to be.
The 0nly choice at this point is to go to a body shop and have them weld in a piece of metal. There really is no quick easy fix there.
It shouldnt cost you too much especially if you want it to be functional and don't car about cosmetics.
it has begun to bend in and cave due to hinge pins and bushings, your local parts store will stock these, just tell them you need driver door pins and bushings they will know what you mean. The pins are the pivot in the hinges, they pound in and out with a hammer, once you have new ones the door will hit at the correct height and stop stressing the striker. It should only cost a few dollars to fix, I'm sorry no one advised this first, make sure to have a helper when you replace them someone needs to balance the door, and do one at a time top or bottom just not both because the door will be hard to hold, you also need to take the spring out of the middle when replacing, parts stores have a special tool for it for only a few buck but i have also just pried them out then compressed them in a vice, thrown a zip tie around them and put it in place and cut the tie. let me know if you need more help.
