Sliding door advice... drooping

Post by crazyhorse »

Hi guys,

I am really confused on how to adjust this sliding door. the front seems ok but it drops at the back. Its a bit of a mindfield

Any ideas on which adjustment i need to make?? Hope someone can help

check the middle hinge the bearing or the wheel could have worn causing the drop, other wise, theres 4 10 bolts at the back edge of the door, undo them lift the door and re tighten them to lift the door, you may need to pull the sliding door rail cover off and have an assistant help with the door

they are on the inside of the door, you can only access 2 of them when the door is open, the middle hinge/runner is what they bolt into so that area

When driving in Norfolk l mentioned to my passenger mate how the roads are so straight in this county. He replied, dont worry there will be a bend round the next corner. Classic. :rofl
