First make sure the hinges aren't bent outward, the tub is square, that the frame mounts are in good shape, and the "B" pillar is not rusted/rusting out at the floorboard.
Heat the Nader pin with a propane torch. That melts the thread lock. Then you can loosen it with a (IIRC) a 50-torx socket. Loosen enough so it can be moved with a light hammer tap. It floats in a captured cage. Once loose, you can move the Nader pin in, toward the center of the tub. Then tighten.
The thread lock will re-set as it cools, so you've got to move quickly.
