Door brake adjustment

Is there an optimal position that I should place the doors in to tighten the door brake bolts? I noticed that both doors aren't secured. The driver side is almost completely unscrewed and the passenger side isn't flush. Just want to make sure there isn't anything I can damage by tightening the bolts in a certain "open" position.

no - in my experience just get them fairly straight looking and tightten them up. But make sure there is no play afterwards at the door jamb. If they "pop" at all they will break off the tabs.

Thanks for the replies. I was able to get them secured. There is still a slight pop on both, so I'll need to look into improving that, but they're much much better now. Both doors were popping significantly prior to adjustment.

If the pop is the rivet, replace it with a bolt with a 10 mm head (like the ones that hold the door brake to the door). Run a tap thru the door bracket and then screw the bolt in - it doesn't need a nut. Your brake will last a lot longer now.

I recently replaced my door brakes as well. I get a little "pop" from each side at full extension.

Can some explain how and where this adjustment can be made? Getting worried that I might rip the tabs off now.

Thanks
