Talking Laguna 1.9dci door noise when opening

Hi everyone,

The drivers door on my Laguna Sport Tourer is making a terrible noise when it's opened (a series of very loud clicks)

I've worked out its coming from the rod thats bolted on the inner front door frame (the rod that limits how far the door opens) as the noise stops when this rod is disconnected)

I am guessing theres some sort of spring mechanism on the end of ths rod inside the door.

Does anyone have a picture or diagram of this mechanism.

Also to inspect this I need to remove the lower plastic trim from the bottom half of the door.

I've found two torx screws securing the plastic along the bottom of the door, are there any more screws? whats the procedure for removing the door inner plastic. Thanks in advance.

The thing making the noise is called a check strap.

The noise can sometimes be cured by lubricating it with grease,then working the door backwards and fowards.Other times,it wears to such a degree that replacement is the only option.

If you need to replace it,then the door card will have to come off.I'm not sure how to do this,but hopefully someone else will.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
