Cracking sound when opening the door of a Megane 3

I have noticed that there is a cracking sound in the door of the driver side as you open or close it. I got this problem on two different megane 3.

I noticed that the plastic rollers on the hinge holding the door got damaged. The damaged rollers are responsible for the hinge to cause that cracking sound. I managed to get replacement parts on ebay and the problem was solved. The rollers from the replacement parts are made of steel and hopefully they will last longer than the plastic ones.

RENAULT Megane MK3 REAR DOOR CHECK ASSS STRAP HINGE STOPPER | eBay
Would think he is referring to this,,,
Check yours, half way down the door, (hinge side) open the door slightly, just enough to get your fingers on the stay, and open it fully, you will feel it jump slightly
allan154, batfink5 and funkoval like this.

One of the most wonderful things in life is to wake up and enjoy a cuddle with somebody; unless you are in prison.
