Scenic 1 Door Stay

I am hoping you kind peeps can help please?
Our recently acquired motor has had a fairly long fault list,
Not got a Haynes yet, but this forum has been really excellent, so it aint been a problem.
When we open the drivers door, it doesn't hold open, either in the 3/4 or full position. The stay is there & does stop the door opening too far. All the other doors are OK.
How much grief is it to do & what is the likely cause / cost please?
Currently in Nottnoc's garage:
2008 Scenic Mk2 Dynamique 1.6 K4M 782. 1998 BMW K1100LTSE, 1994 MotoGuzzi Caifornia 3 LAPD, 1972 Norton Commando, 2010 Trafic SL29 M9R782 115, Lots of tools, Camping Gear & Booze

the door / hinges may be mis aligned. Look around the hinges, do they look like they may have moved?

It sounds as though the check strap is faulty,although I have little idea how much a new one is.

At a guess it'll be around 25-30 for a new one,and it will need the door card removed to replace it.I'd get a quote for a new genuine one and then search out a good second hand one.

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