Remove the front door trim.
(Refer to Front Door - "Front Door Trim")

Remove the front door window glass mounting hole plug (B).
3.
Carefully move the front door window glass (A) until the glass mounting bolts are visible, then loosen them.

Door Striker Adjustment
  
Make sure the door latches securely without slamming it. If necessary adjust the striker (A): The striker nuts are fixed. The striker can be fine adjusted up or down, and in or out.
1.
Loosen the screws (B) just enough for the striker to move.
Tightening torque :
(B) : 16.7 ~ 21.6 N.m (1.7 ~ 2.2 kgf.m, 12.3 ~ 15.9 lb-ft)

2.
Tap on the striker with a plastic hammer to adjust the striker. The striker will not move much, but will give some adjustment.
3.
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.
Door Position Adjustment
  
After installing the door, check for a flush fit with the body, then check for equal gaps between the front, rear, and bottom, door edges and the body. Check that the door and body edges are parallel. Before adjusting, replace the mounting bolts.

Check that the door and body edges are parallel.

Adjust at the hinges (A) :
Loosen the door mounting bolts slightly, and move the door in or out until it aligns flush with the body.
Loosen the hinge mounting bolts slightly, and move the door backward or forward, up or down as necessary to equalize the gaps.
