You asked: How can I make my car door close tighter?

To adjust the door hinge bolts, you may need to loosen the door-lock striker assembly and remove a panel on the door pillar. Bolts may have hexagon or cross-slot heads. They will be very tight; loosen them with a socket and bar, a large screwdriver and self-locking grips or an impact driver.

Why won’t my car door close all the way?

A stuck, binding or rusted door latch, or a door latch that was accidentally closed when the door was open, will keep a door from closing. … If it is in the closed position (no opening), take a screwdriver and gently push up on or rotate the latch while operating the door handle to release the latch.
