Default 2006 Ex Ambo sliding door front gap

I have a 2006 T1N ex ambo I'm converting to a camper, whilst fitting the kitchen cupboard, which backs onto the off side sliding door, I noticed that when closed there was daylight coming in through the door forward edge gap looking from inside.

Not good for being water tight, as driving rain would easily penetrate this gap. The door seal has been removed and re fitted and the flange is ok.

From the outside the door looks normal height and square to the opening but maybe the gap at the front is a little larger than the rear edge.

The door is in alignment with the body face when shut so seems to need adjusting to just be a little further forward when closed, is this possible ? Is it just a case of moving the plastic/rubber wedge thingy's further inboard ?

Done a search here but only found a German video and that was an NCV van.

Hope my explanation is understandable.

Banjo.
There is an adjustment on the back rollers, you access it through a hole in the trim of the slider. Eric.

Well I sure know how the side doors adjustments function now, had to remove my recently fitted kitchen and new full door card to get to the rear adjuster, undid the screw slowly and the bloody door dropped around 15mm ! so had to place an axle stand under the rear edge to level it up moved the door forward about 6 mm but could still see daylight from inside through the front top edge.

Had a cuppa and realised the door was too high at the front edge so gently released the front top hanger and allowed door to rotate anti clockwise a little. Great door now square but door latch at rear was now catching as door was shut !

Bugger you move one thing and everything else changes, anyway after maybe another couple of hours I got it almost spot on, door closes ok and fits much better, still a very slight gap near the metal wedge piece, but 100% better than it was.

Refitted the door card and kitchen this morning.

Not a job to be taken lightly.
