I have a problem with mis- aligning door panels!
It looks like the hinges have no room for alignment because they
centre themselves on the studs in the doors. More than half of the Altima's on the car lots have the same problem, visually it's hard to see until rock chips start to appear on the rear doors front edge because it protrudes, and on the wheel arch behind the rear door because it sticks out further than the rear lower corner of the rear door. Does the repair manual have anything on door alignment / door hinges etc?
Nissans body shop said nothing could be done, when I contacted Nissan complaints line all of the sudden the body shop can fix it! I asked them how and he said they would have to bend ,fill paint the doors, that's just not acceptable.
