Default shower door does not close properly

I have a shower door that seems to have sagged and does not close correctly. I can see the top side of the door is not level. The door has a piano and the piece its hinged to is screwed to the wall. Does not look like any adjustments. The door is held closed by a full length magnet, but its only closed at the top not at the bottom.

Do the hinge bolts go thru the glass?

Default shower door

The bolts/screws do not go thru the glass. Upon further investigation the two sides of the door assembly fit over a smaller inside piece and the inside pieces (one on each side) are screwed to the tile. The assembly goes over these pieces and has screws that screw against it, thus allowing for sides that are not level on a vertical basis. However one side is already adjusted out, but I guess it needed to go further out to fix this problem.

Most of those style of doors do have adjustments within the hinge side or the magnet side. Look for the small screws and back one of them out and see if there is a slot for adjustment. Those screws can be hard to get out sometimes so be careful not to strip them.
