The rear door seems to become not flush with the body surface, like before. I noticed it for a long time, but I think it's getting "worst."

Can I (the average guy) DIY adjust it? If so, where do I adjust? Bottom of the door is perfect, top is off. Or does it involve a body shop?

Car has never been in an accident.

TIA

So I tried it. When you unscrew and screw the Striker back, it set itself automatically back into the same position, because the way the screw hole is shaped. Sort of like this shape \ / . So you can't move it 1-2mm, and tighten it because it will go back to where it was. If it was flat, yes, I can move in 1-2mm and tighten it. I compared it to my friends B15 Sentra where I can adjust it.

Even when I remove the Striker completely, and try closing the door, there is still a gap. I think my door is not curved correctly, and I probably missed it when I bought the car.

Can't the hinge mounts be adjusted? If the door gap is too large at the top, I'd think the upper hinge needs to be moved inward a bit.
