    Hi Derek, I have had the exacted same problem with my 630g, the problem was that one of the gas struts failed and allows the doors weight to come onto the hinges, (up and over door for those that don't know).

    The solution cost over £1000 for a new door and frame complete plus 12 month planning before the work could be done.

    Even after the repair/replacement there was problems! the 2 screws that hold the bottom of the gas struts to the frame of the door are screwed into a wooden batten that surrounds the door, (an arrangement that is simply not strong enough for the loads) started to come loose, so I made up a steel bracket the had multiple screws fixed to the wooden frame and the frame it's self was extended down to the floor of the garage so most of the weight was not on the screws.

    In my mind the whole door is very poorly designed and the choice of material not fit for purpose. The engineering used is simply cheap and nasty

    I hope you have some kind of warranty, I had a lot of trouble getting mine to pay up, also Swift told me that this problem was unknown to them, Well!!!! make of that what you will.

    Derek & Mary,
    I am not sure how old your van is or whether it is still covered by warranty but if you want to PM or email me some details of your van, your dealer and the details of the issue we can look into this for you,

    Thanks
    Andy
