    By rotating the stay bar and then turning the whole assembly, the staybar then runs on the other set of rollers that aren't worn quite so much.

    I did mine a couple of months back, but the noise has since returned. Looks like I will need to fit a new mechanism.

    Thanks Dave,i will give it ago at the weekend.If the noise returns is it just the bearings that require changing or is it the complete assembly.

    Its the Check Strap mate and I usually find the nuts work loose on the door side and nipping them up normally cures it
