Re: door clicking when opening and closing

My car suffered this too. I fixed it by spraying WD40 onto the rollers at the door edge of the check strap mechanism then worked the door back and forth until they ran quiet - it took about 20 mins of so. After the roller components had been worked for a while I made sure they were rotating free using a small screwdriver to rotate them.
Once they were behaving themselves I put a few drops of oil on them.
I oil the hinges and check strap assemblies monthly and haven't had the problem recurr.
