Door Sag

Well parents bought my first car for me today. Anywho, one problem that really caught my eye was the door sag in some of the doors. What's a good way to fix this up? Just get my local mechanic to fix it?

Re: Door Sag

Yeah iv got some drivers side door sag on my 92 EBII fairmont. The car is being re-sprayed at the moment, however my uncle said when we put it back together, we are just going to raise the bolt-on part of the door ever so slightly. Apparently it only needs to be adjusted very very minimally, because a slight difference to where the door bolts on- makes a huge difference at the end of the door near the door handle.

Re: Door Sag

You can also get new door hinge pins from Rare spares. They have a shim in them that wears out. By adjusting the hindge bolts you are just entending the time before it will seem like it has saged again. If you replace the hinge pins then you will fix it for another 10-15 years... beofre she sags again.,.

Re: Door Sag

yep what he said the pins also do go in them
as with most falcons a majority of the time it's either readjust the door or just replace the pin
cheers Bdennis

Exclamation Re: Door Sag

I really suck at searching forums, so I'll kinda of start a new thread within this thread.

The car when starting it cold is pretty sluggish, then if you turn it off and back on again soon after the sluggish start it starts very quickly and smoothly. I know it can't be the engine because of the low mileage and the fact that when the engine is running it runs very well (idle is amazing, no shakes or vibrations). So would what should I do? I know this might seem kinda picky, but compared to the good start up, it really is quite sluggish, like the starter motor is having trouble getting the engine going. Suggestions?
