1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Driver Side Door Needs Adjustment!!

How do I Adjust the Driver side door to shut correctly. It does not shut tight and because of its not shutting tight the dome lights stay on.

So how do I adjust the door to grab tight?

I believe it has something to do the the hinge pins going bad, kind of a common problem on the ZJ's.

Could be the hinges, check that they are tight. You can adjust how the door sits with the 4 bolts on the hinges.

If they are good, it could be that your door has dented where the door ajar indicator presses. Sounds random, but that happened to me.

Well the hinges seem alittle up and down but seem to be the bushings on the hinges. However the hook on the door jam does adjust about 1 inch in any direction then it now shuts good

Thanks guys

These foruns are awesome
