what discofrank said, we used to do it on the el(taxi) all the time.
Although it gets annoying in getting it into the exact spot..

i know its a common problem in XF's etc not sure about EL's etc but if you go to the panel beaters the can put a support or something like that in there, i mate had it done to his car because it had cracked all around the door hinges, panel beater said its common with those cars

Only adjust one hinge at a time, loosen the top one and slighty open the door and lift it up a little then tighten it, then do the same to the bottom one. You will need someone to give you a hand to lift the door so you can tightent he bolts.

might be an idea to use a jack with a bit of rag to protect the door under it to hold the door steady whilst you adjust it
just raise the jack slightly and re-tighten the bolts.
