Door drop

Evening all.

The window trims on my lovely Brera don't quite sit flush when closed; I used to have an old Audi Coupe with pillarless doors and it suffered from a similar issue of 'door drop'. Moreover, the doors are actually damaging the paintwork of the B pillar!

With the old Audi it was just a case of a bottle jack under the door sill and a bit of tightening up around the door hinge...is there a similar method for the Bella?

I've looked in the hinge and it looks a wee bit more complicated than the Audi was.

Pics attached.

looks a little way out, not checked my hinge, but maybe replace the hinge pin?
The doors are very heavy, so I should imaging that the pin has worn

Where are no exact hinge pin there assuming Brera door hinges equal to 159"ers.
Dedicated pin there is bolt with nut in fact.
To do nut tight first hope be enough.

Thanks guys, will give the pin/nut a go when we get some sunshine. Hopefully I won't have to replace anything!

The black rubber things can be easily removed, you push them up and they should just release.
I have one that always comes a bit loose, can also make the door look a bit off as well if you look right at it.
