    Default Driver side door / Clicking noise

    hi all

    When ever I open or close the driver side door I get a very loud clicking noise.

    It clicks once when the door reaches the half open position and again when the door is fully open. (and again when closing it )

    Ive tried greasing the door spring but didnt help, although I was only able to brush it on so mabey didnt grease it deep enough into the door.


    Anyone here got any ideas??

    Sounds like the door strap thingy, the thing that stops the door opening onto the wing? They click at half open and fully open.

    Yes that is where the clicking is comming from.

    The passenger door doesnt make any clicking noise at all, but the drivers door is very loud (annoying).
