Bad news! I was getting them mixed up. The GTN doors open really wide but don't stay open. The S5 doors stay open!

I think the point at which the doors were made flat to the body (Max/S4 onwards) they installed a larger central hinge which did have opening detents and sharp edges which end up cutting the cables if you are not careful.

Hello all

I was told that on the S1 Aero, like on a Classic Morgan, you know when your doors are properly hung and adjusted if when let go, fully open (and car is level), they close!

Merry Xmas

Philip

A bit of useless information but during mid to late production on the series1 Charles got a wet leg so they fitted the very thin rain channel to the wing panel where the door meets,our car is the wet leg version. Getting in and out is a bit of a faff especially with my wife's dodgy knee but hey ho were all getting older Volvos post is spot on.

Sorry Nick i don't but its probably less than a quarter of an inch wide and runs down just in front of the door to the sill very subtle you would never notice. I mentioned the ingress of water years ago to Mark leddington and that was one of the upgrades together with the consertina crap roof.
