Door Striker AdjustmentMake sure the door latches securely without slamming it. If necessary, adjust the striker (A): The striker nuts are fixed, but the striker can be adjusted slightly up or down, and in or out.
|1.||Loosen the screws (B), then insert a shop towel (C) between the body and striker.|
|2.||Lightly tighten the screws.|
|3.||Wrap the striker with a shop towel, then adjust the striker by tapping it with a plastic hammer (D). Do not tap the striker too hard.|
|4.||Loosen the screws, and remove the shop towel.|
|5.||Lightly tighten the screws.|
|6.||Hold the outer handle out, and push the door against the body to be sure the striker allows a flush fit. If the door latches properly, tighten the screws and recheck.|
