    Default 2CV Rear Door Has Dropped Down

    Would a 2CV Guru kindly advise how to lift a rear 2CV door that has dropped too far south in its hinge. If I lift the door a little it closes fine. How can I keep it at the correct height in the hinge?
    Thanks

    Keep lifting the door a little. It wouldn't be a real 2CV if it all works perfect!

    Hi inspector,

    I had this issue when I converted my front doors to suicide doors using the same hinge design as the rear...
    I over came the issue by welding a steel rod into the botton of the B-pillar hinge at the required height. I had access to the bottom of the B-pillar hinge where you will not...
    But! You can find a peice of steel rod that will fit into the round profile of the B-pillar hinge, cut it to the required lifting height and insert it into the top of the hinge, then insert the door and it will aid it in sliding down.
    :-)
    Hope that helps!

    Thanks Harley - that sounds like a feasible fix.
    Cheers
