While the person on the exterior adjusts the door and holds it to the correct position in the frame with an even gap, tighten down the lower hinge bolts inside of the car. More adjustment may be needed but this installation should get you into a normal position. You can adjust more finely by loosening the bolts going into the door through the hinges. The hinge to body bolts should only be loosened if major adjustments are needed.
