Doors aren't "catching"

Recommended Posts

Both of the doors on my 1983 626 coupe are having trouble with the door catches. It takes a good slam to close them.

Car has never been in an accident, so I'm 100% sure it's the latches. What do you do to make them work better? I've tried lubrication...

The door striker plate mounted to your door jam is adjustable.  Mark an outline before you move it as a reference.    Over the years it may have moved inward.
