The back doors on our van don’t shut properly, so we need to do some adjustment of the hinges and/or latches.

I posted a query on the Sprinter Source forum, which turned up a useful YouTube video, albeit in German.

After an hour or so of fiddling about, I think we have a partial solution, which is to put a plastic shim underneath the lower latch to raise it up slightly.

The catches mounted to the van body are about 3-5mm too low to meet the catches on the door.
