Hey guys, I used to live in this van for a bit in 2018 and sold it to a friend in ‘21. I bought it back about 6 months ago to do some camping out of. Ever since I got it back the sliding door can only be opened from the inside. I think I’ve narrowed it down to the rear latch stud being tightened in the wrong position and when I open the handle it doesn’t allow for the rear of the door to pop out. I keep loosening and tightening in different positions but I can’t get it to work right. Anyone else have this? Am I on the right track??

Have you changed door seal? What kinda van? Check ,clean and lube all tracks and rollers,make sure the latches are clean and lubed, don't use white lithium grease that tends to slow down the action of latches,Lucas makes a good penetrant/lube
That is where I would start. And yes door check adjustment will cause binding.

its a 90 G30. im pretty sure its the striker bar positioning, im still working on it when i can. ive been hammering out a few other details with the van. Ill try and get the van door lined up properly when im home next. I travel for work. some positions i can get it to latch but i havent been able to get the rear of the door to pop out when it gets unlatched.
