Looks like I need an open end wrench with 90-deg head. Pin is in the way  
of 3 fasteners. 
If Lowes does not have one, I will make one.

Kick Panel off, Now I see that this adjustment would not use shims at  all. 
Looks like a matter of loosening all 12 fasteners, then fetteling the  door 
into submission. 
Any methods/tips?

My DHC has horribly fitting windows. the gap between front and rear  side 
lights lets a lot of rain in. 

I showed pictures to Pete Woodall and he observed that the front  window 
was not looking quite right, needed to be further inboard. 
I set about the task today of making adjustment and made an  interesting 

It appears that the alignment of the door is off.  Looking along  the line 
where the door meets the sill, the top is further out than the  bottom. No 
wonder the window frame can't line up. 

The WSM says the (limited) adjustment is done with shims (packing  pieces) 
where the hinge meets the door pillar. 
Pardon my ignorance, but where is that, exactly? Behind the kick  panel?  
I'm not seeing where any shim in the door itself would adjust  the top/bottom 

So let's assume this is the trick.  Either the top needs fewer  shims or 
the bottom needs more shims. I suppose since you can't go less  than zero, we 
have to play it by ear. 

Comments and experience stories welcomed.
