Drivers door dropped

Post by turfite9999 » Wed Mar 31, 2021 3:30 pm

Hi guys hope you are all well,
my drivers door seems to have dropped so have to lift to close, does anyone know of a fix, or how to remove the door.

Many thanks in advance

I know the A post is just a bit of bent tin, really thin, it's either been bent or the bottom maybe rotten and it's moved forwards allowing the door to move downwards/forwards.
This is a well know rot spot behind the front wheel, front end of cill etc

I can only think support it, maybe ropes tied to something, then undo the bolts.

Obviously disconnect the loom first.
