Default help on my passenger door

yesterday the passenger door overextended and door catch was broken.

also, the door doesn close properly.

do u think i can just bend the tabs holding the door hinge to get the door closing properly and get a body shop to replace the door catch??

thanks in advance

These hinges are pretty stout. Most likely the door jamb is bent some. You can try straightening the hinges, but in the end, I beleive you will end up at an auto body.

Maybe just remove the door catch all together.

thanks for the response guys

i thought about removing the door catch but the door still wouldn shut properly cause the tab which the hinge is mounted on is bent

i took it to some body shops and got estimates ranging from 200 to 765 which was weird....
