Door hinges on early W108
When opening the near side door I notice that the door is slightly loose on the door hinges. Looking close on the door hinges I can see that the lower hinge on the front doors consists of a bolt through an aluminium metal part, with the bolt secured by a small nut.
If I understand this correctly, I believe that the bolt can be adjusted to decrease the slack. If so how much, does anybody know what Mercedes them selves said, or what does common sence say?
Is it possible to adjust or is the door hinge worn out? Please note that the door hinge doesn't look anything like the ones used on later W108's.
I would be very happy if anyone coluld help me out on this.
