Welcome to this forum. Good to see you're sorted and thanks for letting people know.

However not good for the door to have dropped on a 2 year old car.

If the door has sagged as you say - then there is either a problem or something was loose , which is surprising as such fixtures have a critical assembly torque during assembly

Thanks Dave, the nissan tech who looked at it said they believe that the seatbelt buckle had been caught in the door when its been closed at some point which caused it to drop, but I don't even remember the door being out at all, I valet the car sometimes weekly and it would have been something that I would definitely have noticed, when the guy pointed it out you could see it a mile off, so when drying right up close it would be very noticeable.
