How to shim or adjust shower door, 2010 25'er

The shower door on our 2010 Eddie Bauer began to bind after a year of use. We took it to the local dealer who said they put a shim in it to lift it very slightly. They billed Airstream for the warranty repair and the door swung freely again. This summer several miles of washboard gravel caused the problem to reappear. When you open the door, it binds on the track below it. On examining the door I'm at a loss as to how you'd "shim" the door, or otherwise adjust it.

I can lift the door and make it slide up a quarter inch on it's hinges--which would fix the problem--, but I can't see how I can shim the thing or otherwise hold it in place.

Three square hole screws hold the hinge assembly to the fiberglass shower surround. These don't seem to relate to the problem. Tight or loose, I can still lift the door on it's hinge a quarter inch.

There are phillips head screws at the corners of the shower door, but these seem to hold the frame together. They don't seem to have anything to do with positioning re the hinge.

Any ideas anyone?

If you could take and post pictures perhaps someone has had the same issue.

I had a 23 FB that had the shower door rubbing the sweep. And the door was raised with tiny shims which were actually washers that were installed at the top of the door's hinge.

It could be that your shower enclosures was the same.

Try to post a picture or two of the top of the shower door's hinge.
