    hey guys,

    i have noticed lately in my vt commodore that when i drive over a rough bit of road, it sounds like my doors rattle (the sound they make if you drive with them not fully closed).. but they are fully shut!!! can this be fixed by adjusting them or not??? if so how???

    thanks

    You can adjusted the door latch on the side piller with a hex key. Only undo it a bit and with a hammer tap it inwards towards the centre of the car. It takes a bit of stuffing round to get it to close right

    yeah the U bent latch that is mounted on the body of the car can slide into the car and to close the door further to make it tighter with allen key(i think)....but be careful...to much in and the body and doors are not smooth and level coz sitting too far in causing whistling noise from wind
