Front Drivers side collision. Now the door won't fit, obviously, the lower hinge needs to be moved toward the rear of the vehicle and up, but that's no an option.







Any Ideas??? Other than a new tub, of course.

Hmm, did that hit take the whole forewall/cowel area back a couple inches? Seems odd, that door is doing just the oposite as I would think it would do with that kind of hit, unless the entire driver side of the tub/cowel was pushed back and now the door opening is smaller.

If the door will actually fit in the hole, you can loosen up the hinge bolts, close the door and tighten the bolts. If not, get out the hammer and knock the tub back where it belongs.

A high lift jack works great for expanding the door opening again, if that is the issue. But you still look like you need to hammer some stuff back to their original positions again...
