2005 Chevy - Adjusting van doors?
With everyone typically taking used vans and rehabbing them into campervans, I'm curious if anyone has ever had to adjust the alignment of any of the cargo doors?
The passenger-side 60/40 cargo doors on my van have been stiff since I bought it, with the rear "40" door (rear) being the worst. I've always had to slam them hard to close properly. Now suddenly the 2 doors don't align. The rear closes but the gap at the rear verticle seam is larger than the opposite side (I can stick my pinky finger in it, can't come close on the other side; partially visible in the first pic). The "60" door (front) doesn't latch at the bottom. It is enough to lock the doors but it isn't correct. It seems that the rear door has shifted forward.
I've done a little searching online, looked in my owners manual and my repair guide. So far I have little info specific to adjusting/aligning van doors. Has anyone dealt with this and have some advise? I intend to work on it this weekend. The pics below show the gap being formed with both doors closed and some details of the lower door jamb. The text on the black door guide says "Forward/Inboard" with arrows pointing to the midline of the van. Does this mean moving that plate inboard moves the alignment of the door forward (and moving it outboard moves the door backward)?
