Hi there guys.

My 147's back door feels sticky when opening.
In fact every time someone new trys to open that door they claim it's lock and stop trying to open it.
When you pull the handle the door doesn't spring out - nothing happens, so you have to pull the door while continuously holding the handle.

At first I thought it was the seals that had dried from lack of use - but it doesn't seem like it.
After looking closely the door seems to descend slightly the moment it leaves the car frame.
Another sign of this is the missing paint on the bottom of the "car frame", near the "central pilar" (not sure I'm using the correct term.) - where the back door hinges are!
Confused??? :confused:
I'll have to post some pics for sure!!!

Anyway, Does anyone know how to adjust doors on the 147 :)

worn door hinges could do this

or simply try 'lifting' the door, it might adjsut itself on the hinges

the adjustment is in behind the wing,
