    Knightmare, flaming weather. Couple of months ago the wind caught the mondeo's door as I got out and smashed it against the kerb.

    Must be able to raise it again in the hinges??

    ahh, the best counciller is a dose of stella ok it wont get rid of the problem but it makes you worry a little less. it may just need a lttle lift under the door to correct it mate. if ur free pop round at the weekend we'll have a compare up.

    Sorry to hear that mate. Can't really give any advice other than perhaps having a body shop look at it.

    If the door doesnt move up or down at all when you lift it in the open position, chances are the hinges may have moved slightly,it wont take much movement to drop the door.
    Id probably try and lift it back first, if it moves, tighten your hinge bolts!
    Not looked at Zaffy hinges but had experience of lots of other doors in the past
    Hope you get it sorted mate
