3.
After loosening the mounting bolts, carefully move the front door window glass (A) left and right to adjust the gap until the glass mounting bolts are visible.

4.

Door Striker Adjustment
   
Make sure that the door latches securely without slamming it. If necessary, adjust the striker (A): The striker nuts are fixed. The striker can be fine adjusted up and down, or in and out.

2.
Tap on the striker with a plastic hammer to adjust the striker. The striker will not move much, but will give some adjustment.
3.
Hold the outer handle out, and push the door against the body to be sure the striker allows a flush fit. If the door latches properly, tighten the screws and recheck.
