Happy Dude Here !! I just got the clutch replaced on my 96 Trek and after a "alptraum" fight with the clutch over spring cup everything seems to be working ok. So the next minor fix is my drivers side door is sagging a bit. Any pointers on getting at those frickin' bolts to true it then tighten them up would be great. Thx.

It's not always the position of the door hinge where it mounts
to the body. Still, you need two people, one to hold the door while
you loosen the bolts, they can lift it up a bit, then you tighten.

You can get new hinges on eBay, your best solution.

The condition is called "door hang" and the driver side
is usually the first to go. The weight of the door eventually
wears out the pivot point (door pin). In older cars you only
needed to replace the door-pin, but they're all one piece
now, or just as easy to replace the hinges.
