Q: Door not closing

asked by on

The front passenger's side door will not close.

A: The door uses a striker and latch mechanism...

The door uses a striker and latch mechanism to close the doors tightly and securely. On the door side, these components often get dirty or the grease wears down. This part needs to be kept lubricated to work properly. Also, the metal around this mechanism is somewhat weak by itself and continuous slamming can cause the metal to break. This loosens the mounting location for this latch and if the mount is loose, the door can move even when completely latched. Have an experienced technician, such as one from YourMechanic, inspect the door mechanism and door alignment to determine why your door won't close.
