I found this little gem on the Cari Chinese forums. Forumer Blackgenius007 has a solution for Proton Gen2 owners who have trouble closing their Gen2 doors. It’s pretty common. The Gen2’s door cannot be closed properly with some cars.
The reason for this is poor quality control by Proton assemblers. The alignment of the door hinge is not aligned properly. Here is the solution.
You can click the images for a bigger version.
If you look at the photos, you can see the marking lines on the lock does not line up with the marking lines on the door.
What you need to do is take a screwdriver, loosen the screw and realign the lock. You don’t have to unscrew it, just loosen it so you can reposition it.
Here is the result… the proper alignment of the door lock. Now your Proton Gen2’s doors should be able to open and close with ease.
