Let me do the car door - it won't close properly.

What does 'do the car door' mean?

Thanks!

It depends on context. It could be an offer to close it, or to mend it, or to paint it, or to treat it for rust... , or it could be a claim to the right to do better what someone else is already doing - 'Here, let me do it, I have the knack'.
