Q: Passenger door won't close

asked by on

The passenger door will not close. The striker bolt thread is striped.

Hi there. It seems to me that you will need a replacement of the plate itself. For this to be properly repaired, I recommend having a mechanic properly inspect your door to determine what repairs are needed. Parts can be ordered and installed for you by a certified mechanic sent by YourMechanic.
