Adjusting UPVC door

Hi. Our UPVC door is failing to close fully at the bottom leaving a few mm gap. It usually closes fully if pushed from the outside at the bottom. I've removed the cap on one of the hinges revealing several points of possible adjustment (see photo), however I am unsure which to adjust. There are also grub screws on the inner part of the hinge. Any help appreciated.

Has it always been like that? If so the frame has a slight twist and hasn't been installed plumb.
One of the hinge adjustments may enable you to move the door closer or further away from the frame.
