Sliding door not sealing?!

Hi all.
I've got a 61 plate citroen relay (2.2 diesel) that is going to become a campervan! Currently trying to get everything sealed so I have a good shell to work with. The problem is that the sliding door seems to be playing up. First of all, it only opens from the inside. The top latch is broken AND the pin is missing - I have the parts to replace them. I also have a replacement locking mechanism as that seems to jam easily too. The biggest problem at the moment is that it doesn't seal shut. Along the top there is a few mm where I can see light coming through and water gets in constantly which is obviously a big problem. If I replace the latches will that seal it? Or do I need to adjust the door/rollers too?
Please help! I'm stumped.
