Q: Door loose

asked by on

The driver's side door is loose.

I will assume that the door is hanging, and does not line-up properly when closed. There are a few situations that can cause the door to hang loose: The hinges holding the door on may have started to fatigue, or the door itself may be broken at the location where the hinges attach. Have a trained mechanic inspect the mounting locations of your loose door, and determine if it can be repaired, or if replacement of the door assembly may be necessary.
