    Default Driver door annoying me!!Vectra C

    When you start to close the door there is a bang which seems to be coming from the hinge.Anyone else had this problem and what would need replacing to sort it out.It really gets on my nerves.

    Had the problem on my old Astra? iT was the bolt holding the hinge against the bodywork, it was a bit loose? Might be the same thing?

    This is exactly the cause. Its called a door check strap and it cost me about €20 from the dealers. Easy enough job... involves removing the door card.

    Had to swap drivers and passengers on my wife's old punto. Both had ripped their wheels clean out.
    Drivers side is just starting to click on mine but the bolt seems a little loose so it may just be that.

    Try greasing the mech then tightening the bolts first, if that doesn't work, whip the door card off & raplace

    Punto was a complete barsteward to do, Doors had to come off to get into everything the panels were that tight. Took a good few hours to do them but well worth the effort. Originals had a crush riveted pin holding a plastic wheel in place that snapped. I changed them out for stainless bolts with nylock nuts and alloy rollers....much smoother and the doors will rust off before they break again.
