    After many years, my door has started to rub at the bottom corner (far side from hinge). I seem unable to adjust anything and I can't find any image of the hinge. At the top and bottom of the hinge, there is nothing to adjust - when the plastic caps are removed there is only a smooth round pin. There is a small plate which can be removed from the hinge when the door is open, and this covers a small "captive bolt and nut" - but I cannot access this bolt make any adjustment - see photos

    Can you access the hinge mounting screws, on left of pic. Take door off and adjust, refit and check. Might be only way if door won't open further
