I notice that the front passenger door on my 24 touring is hard to close. It takes a good pull from the inside to get the latch to click, The paint on the door frame is also scuffed off.
It would almost seem like the whole frame of the car flexes so that the door does not fit but I have not tested it with heavy bodies against an empty car to see if it is the body of the car flexing.
The hinges are quite tight, not allowing for a hinge squeeze to shorten the width of the door.
What is the accepted procedure to get a better fit for that door?

Alan,

I did it like Mike Walker shows in the link above on all three of my doors. It adjusted the doors so that they latch properly and no longer protrude outside the rest of the body. And the best part is its not expensive or difficult to do.
