    Unhappy Door trouble

    I'm wondering if anybody can shed some light on my situation for me. If noticed this for a little while and it's really starting to bug me. My nearside rear door does not appear to shut properly. I had a look at the offside rear door and that one seems fine. It's the top end by the rubber seal etc... where it looks to be raised more than the other side. And i'm sure that i've been hearing more and more road noise i'm wondering if it's getting worse?

    My questions are:

    > Does/has anybody else have/had this problem?
    > If so then have you fixed it and how?
    > Or is it just down to poor Vauxhall manufacturing again?

    Cheers

    Pics below:

    Offside rear door - normal


    Nearside rear door - looks to be ajar at the top. I can actually push on the top and it'll sit back in place then when i let go it goes back to as you see now.


    Offside rear door again - different angle

    Have you had the car from new? Has it had any previous damage to that area? One of my mates had a A3, it took a knock to the rear arch by a car reversing into it. No OBVIOUS damage, but it knocked the rear door out of line from the rear quarter panel.

    No i haven't. But it does have a slight scuff/scratch mark on that rear wheel arch (was there when i bought it and they had touched it up). But shorely someone scuffing my rear wheel arch wouldn't put the door out of line. Would it?

    It is pretty much lined up at the top end now. Might have another go later or tomorrow to finish it off.
