ed sagging door

i nwas just wondering how i'd go about fixing a sagging door on the ed i'll be getting once the spac is gone

i've found that once the door is opened the lock area scrapes on the other part of the locking mechanism thus making the door hard to open

is there a way to fix this myself or should i get fordwise onto it instead?

btw it's sagging about 5-10mm

Re: ed sagging door

i got ppl interested in the spac already for that price so i worry about how hard it'd be to fix cause i thinking it might have been damaged and not worth buying

Re: ed sagging door

nup, gotta agree - you're worrying about a car you haven't even got. sell the spac first then worry about it!
besides, if the ED is at a dealer, you need to give THEM first chance to fix anything you find wrong with it, it'll be in your terms of sale.

Re: ed sagging door

no reg and rwc, you are nuts lol.

At the very least, get it checked out to make sure it can actually pass roadworthy. If your theory is correct and it has been in a prang, there could be other stuff wrong with it that you cant tell by just lookin at it.

But why am i saying this, you know all this sh!t lol.

Re: ed sagging door

Had that alot in the ole XE, they just started to sag after time. I think what dad did was stick a few thin washers under the bottom hinge mount to the body. Worked a charm. But sagging doors on an ed means alot of kays, or its had a fair shunt on the side at some point.

Re: ed sagging door

sounds like the dealer is hiding something if he wont let it get checked out, walk away, I would.

I did put something here, but it vanshied, I think
