Cargo bay door attachment problem

On the driver's side of our '02 GT325, the forward-most bay door is mis-aligned with the body side, sticking out about a quarter inch at the top of the forward end when it's closed.

When it's being opened, the aluminum extrusion from which it hangs moves out from the body another 1/8" and seems to rotate downwards a small amount.

I only use this bay for my campfire kindling in a plastic box and the door is still functional, but I'd like to fix it.

Does anyone have access to assembly drawings for this area so I can see how it was originally put together? It's not obvious when looking at it from outside.

You might have better luck in the Georgetown area.
I moved you there.

If you look at the hinges inside the door there is a nut that can be loosened. You can adjust both top and bottom to align them. It's not difficult to do. Hope this helps and don't forget to lubricate those hinges. They have a tendency to rust and become very hard to open and close.

Do you have a recommendation regarding the type of lubricant for the hinges?
