I am in assy and trying to rotate a group of seperate parts as one, but i cant seem to select more
than one part in drag mode,
Any suggestions as to how i can get around this, what i am doing is opening a car door and the hinge off a pivot point on the hinge to check i miss the front fenders etc.
If you have all of your relationships to all associated parts established good enough, you should only need to select one part and rotate it....the rest should follow.

If the hinge is an adjustable assembly sometimes that doesn't drag very well. If you did that you may have to separate the hinge into door half and body half ("jamb half" for me in the architectural world).
Another way to do it is to put an angle relationship in the hinge and open a peer variable table for it. You can type in various angles and see how it behaves. This sometimes works better because you can put in an angle and then move the model around and really get a good look at it.
If you're really feeling daring (and/or bored), apply a motor to the hinge and let it sit there opening and closing the door as you visually check out different areas of the fender gap, etc..Sometimes I like to see the actual physical motion in realtime, and from areas where you can't actually make the door open by dragging the cursor around.
Many thanks for your suggestions, i seemed to have cracked it using the steering wheel, once i selected the parts to rotate.
