My passenger door leaks water when it rains and from what I have read, my door needs to be adjusted up just a tick. Is the adjustment on the door side or the tub side of the hinge?

Thanks!

That's what I was looking to hear. I didn't figure they would put the adjustment on the door, but these are the people who didn't paint or prime between steel and aluminum, so before I scratched up paint, I thought I would ask.

Thanks so much!

Try adding a nylon washer first to see if you get a better fit

Add the washer on the door pin. Quick easy way to raise it up to see if it fixes your issue. If it does fix it, you can them always adjust the hinge.

I just put 1/8" thick adhesive backed foam tape (weather stripping) behind the seals on the door so the seals press tighter against the door frame.

Zero leaks since, even with a power washer.

Available at any auto parts or hardware store. Cost about $6 a roll.
