56 plate, ever since I got the van over 2 year ago there is a decent sized gap at the top of the rear door, is this a common thing? I'm not sure if it's the sealing rubbers have shrunk or somehow the doors have moved (although I'd imagine there wouldn't be much room for movement)

I've attached a few pics, only seems to be the top of the doors

Good grief that's some gap right there! Can the latch be adjusted? I had a Capri with a poorly fitting door back in the day. The garage wound down the window and wrenched the top to close the gap. In your case it has fixed glass so not recommended.

You weren't kidding about the gap. Certainly not normal.

Does the door move if you lift / tilt it?

I'm thinking the hinges need adjusted or replaced.

Usually you can loosen the hinge bolts a little and move / tap the hinge body until the door fits correctly.

Everything is rock solid..... No movement, I'll try loosening the hinges tomorrow, can't make it any worse lol

So, the hinges can be moved to make the gap smaller, the locking catches (or whatever its called) on the van itself can also be realinged, gap is now smaller so I might look at getting a rear rubber seal, see if that stops daylight getting in 😁
