My passenger door is hitting the fender when opening and had chipped the paint on both edges. Can anyone tell me what I need to do to adjust either the fender or the door to gain some clearance between the two?

My guess is that your tire hit the fender at some point in time? Open the door and look forward in the door jamb, you should see a few bolts that attach the fender. I've had good luck just slightly loosening those (3?) bolts and moving the fender a bit by hand and tightening everything back down. A little goes a long way here!
two things come to mind for fender to door contact, one if the van was recently lifted or jacked up by the outside pinchweld is very possible that the fender I got pushed away from its proper location.
Are you sure the door wasn't struck in anyway? and if you lift the door by the bottom is it solid or does it clunk?
clunking= hinges are shot.
