I appear to have a twist on my rear door which is allowing water to enter the internal door skin, is it possible to alter the door mechanism to pull it in slightly, or is it better to replace the door seals, which leaves me to believe that the door has a slight twist in it, i can see daylight in the top corner of the door when closed,
any advice appreciated,

On the Hartel door the hinge bolts can come loose allowing the door to deform. Remove the plastic cover, screws visible with opened door, large allen socket bolt underneath.
