Yup. I've done it, back in the day, and it's easier if you have a helper to hold the door while you loosen and re-tighten the mounting bolts. (Although I seem to recall doing it with Maverick doors using a chair as a "helper.") The brackets or holes should all be slotted. It's especially easy if the door only needs adjustment in one direction, at one location, although you may still have to adjust two or more bolts.

PLEASE don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.

yes the computer chip in car keys now a days is a rip off. $100 for a duplicate key that costs $8 on ebay.

one can carefully hack open your exsisting key, remove the micro chip and epoxy it glue it VERY near to the key hole. more than a 1 cm away and it wont' work. I did it on a Nissan versa and bought 6 key blanks. of course thieves can theoretically steal the car easier, but any "good" thief would avoid the car assuming it has the safety feature still there.

the actual chip is around 7x4mmx2mm thick pretty small,

I for get how I extracted mine years ago, but remember being pretty nervous about it. I think a box cutter, hair dryer and a dremel did the trick.
