Door adjustment?

I thought you could adjust the door catch to adjust the door. My 350 has some wind noise coming in from the passenger side door? Is that not how you adjust it. Can it be adjusted. The catch only needs about 1/8 inch adjustment to close the gap. The noise is getting irritating.

I have the same noise from the drivers side. I tried to adjust the catch on the truck, and it got worse. I finally got it back to where it was, then I adjusted the mechanism on the door. That worked better, but it is still not right. If anyone can tell me how to adjust this, I too would be appreciative.

loosen the bolts on the striker just a little bit, about a 1/4 turn and hit the striker with a block of wood and a hammer. this should tighten up the door

I tried that and it never even moved. Maybe it was just stuck. I didn't want to hit it too hard.

you have to give it a good hit or two and it will move enough. the block of wood is so you don't miss and hit the door jam. apiece of steel works better.just remember you only need to move it 1/8 of an inch
