Default Door alignment?

My right hand door is a real Bi*ch to close. I usually roll the window down an inch or so to close it. I tried to illustrate it with the pics. They are taken with the door just pushed to. the forward part of the window is above the top seal and the rearward part of the window is somewhat below the seal.
Can the door be adjusted?

If the door gap is consistent with the front wing/fender line and the bottom line under the door then its a glass issue.
I think from old VW cabriolets I have owned you should be able to adjust the glass in various different ways. If the door card is removed, the window will normally have several options for adjustment to improved and create a secure fit.

However my experience on old VW convertibles may not apply, but the trip from Stuttgart to Osnabruck's Karmin factory isn't far so they may have shared similar ideas on this.

Targa window adjustment is pretty common.

Here is a good link on Pelican.

and another

Adjustments might be the same for the 964.
