Conservatory door hinge adjustment

My friends conservatory door has dropped. The hinge mechanism is below.

The type I'm familiar with can be adjusted for height with a 6mm Allen key but this is different.

I've managed to lif the pin thinking it is a cover but I think it is the pin holding the hinge together...

Can this hinge be adjusted for height, if so, how.

Looks like you loosen the Philips screws and lever up

Nope, tried that already, those screws move the hinge left-right.

Cannot dismiss the fact that no adjustment is possible in which case how to raise the door.

Could it be a case of: remove the pivot pin, fit shims, refit pin? By shims, I mean washers of assorted thicknesses.

Doesn't look as though there is any way to adjust the height, without lifting the whole hinge?

Our back door has the same hinge, and started catching. What I did was use those left-right philips screws so that the bottom came out and the top came in, thereby lifting the far edge up.

You should also find that the hinges screw into the door case (in my case it's another three self tappers), if you loosen those off you should get yourself a couple of millimetres adjustment on the entire door.

The problem it s likely to be nothing to do with the hinge's. The door Will need toe and heeling. Remove glazing beads and fit packers between the glass and frame.

Our conservatory double doors dropped over a few years. After some faffing myself with the same type of hinges I ended up calling the people who built the conservatory who sent a guy out to remove the internal glazing beads and fit new plastic packers between the frame and the glazing unit itself. Took him a few goes, but he got it sorted in under an hour and the charge was 30.00. Problem solved, doors open and close fine and I've now learnt how to do it if/when it happens again.

I believe you can buy kits of the plastic packers from eBay for not much money and the internal glazing beads are easy to remove with a scraper.
