    Side Sliding Door on Iveco Daily



    CLICK HERE TO REMOVE THESE ADVERTS
    The sliding door does not close flush to the body, The problem is the top 18 inches of the door is sticking out by about 1/4 inch which lets the rain in. I adjusted the leading bar of the door but it just made it worse. It seems the top right hand mechanism is not clicking on to the bar. Any suggestions to remedy this would be gratefully received. Happy New Year to all.

    Had the same on my Vauxhall movano replaced all the parts one after the other top runner bottom runner sliding rail and hinge still don’t shut top right hand corner properly maybe will need to do the top catch too
    It’s a know problem apparently luckily it don’t let in rain but a draught sometimes if facing wind
    Also jams shut sometimes too
    Good luck parts are dirt cheap on ebay paid £300 to Vauxhall’s first it was no better

    I know little of the adjusting mechanism on an Iveco. But on
    other vans the adjustment is often made opposite the edge in
    question. It may be preferable to have the gap at the bottom rear
    rather than at the top edge, given no other choice?

    Hello,

    Had similar trouble with my Citroen, due to distortion of bodywork.
    Should you be able to reduce the clearance to less than 3/16th inch, apply a strip of self-adhesive draught excluder (found mine in Aldi) to the bodywork above the door (and down the sides as needed. Then apply vaseline to the original rubber sealing strips on the door, to prevent the two pieces of rubber from sticking together. Had no leaks the two years since doing this.

    Regards,
    Martlet.

    "Known problem....body distortion" . Makes you wonder where else
    the body has distorted perhaps a seam or two. Only one remedy
    really, change it for a Merc. or VW.! I've adjusted the slider on my
    own van and a fair number of others, always weather sealed, albeit
    sometimes after going through a fiddly procedure.

    it's one of those things - you can spend loads of time and money trying to get it sorted,maybe you succeed ,but i've seen a few and went for the drip strip- instant success.some things are better bodged i reckon

    Had a similar problem on mine, I discovered after some playing, that you can't adjust one part, without it affecting all the adjustment. I did manage to adjust the entire door, took nearly a day, and when you close it, you have to make sure the top rear catch fully engages. There is a knack to closing my door without that little bounce back, that prevents that top latch from fully engaging.

    Good luck with that! My VW is so blooming airtight that the doors sometimes just won't shut properly unless I open a window first. They bounce back.
