Might be the door or the body. Measure the opening.

I think I expect too much from a car company. (throws hands up in supplication and defeat).

As the sun was coming up the other day, straight down the side of the van, I could see by the shadows that most of the body panels and doors are warped/mis-aligned/screwy. Which leads me to believe that my sliding door is well within typical "averages" for Transit builds.

I really don't care that it sticks out a bit at the bottom corner, as long as the seals keep water and dirt out and the door closes. I see that the driver and passenger door also have alignment issues; or the front fenders do. They WORK, though. I still haven't identified the rattle at the top of the slider yet, either. There is enough insulation in the small cavity above it that I know it's not coming from there. Must be inside the door itself or the closed cavity right above it. Sounds like hard plastic rattling on metal. Kind of annoying on the 1000 mile trip this last week.
