Before starting, ensure the catch hook engages correctly.

To be on the safe side, the guide wedges should be removed.

The door should slide without damaging paint and sheet metal.

Using a ratchet, the guide wedges can be easily detached at the top and bottom.
Also, remove the closing eye on the C-pillar.

Now, still the stop up and down pull tight so that the sliding door can be optimally adjusted.

One attempt shows the door glides much better.

It is done in three steps:
1. Adjust the height of the door.
2. Gap
3. Installation depth

The height of the sliding door is set first in front.
Loosen the screws of the carriage at the top and bottom.
By raising and lowering the door can be set to the correct setting.

Next, check the height of the door using the bead image. only when the bead image is in a straight line, the screws are adjusted again with a torque of 23 Nm.

At the rear of the sliding door, the height can only be changed by the adjusting screw.

Loosen the lock nut. Again, orientate the bead image, to adjust the height then tighten the lock nut.
Continue with the gap measure. loosen the screws on the middle carriage so the carriage can be moved horizontally.

Close the door and determine the exact size using the bead pattern.

Accordingly, the bolts are tightened again with a torque of 23 Nm.

Continue to installation depth. Loosen the upper adjustment screws until door can be easily pushed out. Only then is it possible to equalize the flatness of the door with the B-pillar.
Check the plane. The feeler gauge is a great help.
Retighten the screws, before repeating the procedure on the lower adjustment screw

The adjustment is done. Now, only the new settings have to be transferred to the sliding door.

First screw in the locking eye.
Note: Only if this is variable vertically as well as horizontally, it can snap into the guide eyelet. Tighten the door. Press in the door on the rear part and test the installation depth.
If correct, the closing eye can be adjusted with | a torque of 20 Nm.
First loosely insert the guide wedges | and loosen the counterparts on the door frame. Similar to the locking eye, the guide wedges must fall neatly into the lock.

Adjust the bolts on all four parts afterwards with a torque of 8 nm Next, check the spring elements of the two sliders.

Now you can also use the previously screwed stops (at the back of the door) are turned on again so that the door is in closed condition against the body.

Finally, set the two sliding door stops: Open door until locked position.
Loosen all screws at the top and bottom.
Next, move the stops to the ideal position by opening the door.
