Today as I was getting out of the passenger door, the wind picked up and ripped the door out of my hand and flung it open. I did a quick visual but didn't see anything but on my way home I could hear the wind whistling through the top and front of the interior while driving. After I got out and looked more closely, the passenger top of the door looks to be a little away from the body and touch higher. How do you adjust the door whenthe hinges and hang of the door looks right?

This is going to sound like some Southern engineering, but it's the way that the stealerships fix this problem. Take a 2 x 4 and hold it in the door jamb just above the latch and slowly close the door on the 2 x 4. Using the 2 x 4 as a fulcrum point, carefully push the top of the door frame in tweaking the door on the hinges. It won't take much so tweak it once or twice then take it for a test drive to ensure that the wind noise is gone. If it's not, keep repeating the process until the noise goes away. Wink
