Slide wash room with the bifold is uneven

I have my slide wash room with the bifold at the top and the bottom. It's uneven. Do I buy a newer bifold?

For one thing, the guide on the top left side is a little crooked, so the hole might be rounded and enlarged. That could be repaired if its a problem. But to adjust the doors, there is a screw on the top guide (pivot side when the door is open) that you loosen, then you can tap the guide a little closer to the door jamb and retighten the screw.

I'm just guessing... no way to know or get excited about it if it's not a problem... it just looked funny. It doesn't match the other one so one of them isn't original. Adjust the pivot side of the door then see how it acts.

1 of 2 different adjustments could be off. Usually the lower one is in a tooth like mount and door can be lifted and slid a couple of notches. The other one is a screw in top hinge that is loosened and hinge slides. On yours it looks like the bottom needs to come out about 2 maybe 3 clicks.
