Hello,
One of my doors is not properly secured. 2 nuts turn loosely ...
No apparent bolts and so I imagine that I will have to redo a larger hole with a new screw thread.

Thanks for you support !

Hi Xavier,
welcome on this Forum also.
In the photo you show the Screw and there is a Nut inside at the back. Maybe you will need to remove some Carpet to see. I suggest you get a Ring Spanner on the Nut at the back then remove one of the Screws. Clean and assemble with large Washer at back and Nyloc Nut. Maybe you will need to make a Flat on one side of the Stainless Steel Washer to fit.

Thanks Alan,
I had already looked behind the carpet but there is a rounded fiberglass shell that does not give access to the nuts.
It's really strange but at the same time it reassures me that a solution is possible ... like on your 3000M.

I'll take a picture tonight and look at the other door.
I will keep you posted

your nuts are probably OK.. chances are your hinge pin is worn or snapped.

Hi Xavier,
i just checked on my 3000M and 3000S and at the back of the Hinges there are 4 Nuts on each Hinge. One above and one below, also two on the high part of the moulding.
On my 3000M all of the Nuts were covered in a Black horrible Mastic and you could not see the Nuts underneath the Mastic. I think all the Mastic was there to stop water leaks.
Sorry but you need to go with your Head and a Light to have a close look.
You might find the Nuts are rusted on the threads (a horrible job to do).
Alan
