Door Sag

Gday StarkEA

I had the same problem on my old xf and here is how I fixed it (not sure if same as EA though)

Open the door and you should see the hinges. You may need to take off your front guard that is in front of the door to get to the bolts which attach the hinges to the car (look at your manual or a workshop manual for bolt positions).

The next step is the hardest (took me ages) just undo the hinge bolts a little and just nudge the door up a bit and test to see if it works better and tighten when it is all o.k.

Put the front guard back on and you should be o.k.
