1995 Thunderbird V8. The driver's side door will hardly close. To get it closed one has to softly put the door abutting the latch, lift up very hard on the end of the door, then push against the door. The latching rod seems to hit the latch mechanism a little high, but I see no way to adjuct the mechanism upwards. The mechanism seems to function when I finger it. The hinges have a little play, though it doesn't seem extraordinary (however I might not be able to tell). What is wrong and what needs to be fixed/replaced?
I've heard that this is not an uncommon problem with these cars.
Thanks for any help. The door closing is getting worse to the point that once in a while it doesn't close at all and I have to drive very carefully/dangerously with one arm out the window holding the door!
have the same problem?
