Re: Cracking noise when opening/closing doors

Its funny you should mention this as I have it on my drivers door too. Whats funny about it is that I think I have had this problem on all of my Renaults and apart from 1 car I have had several. All Renault from when I was 17 now 47.
Im no good at fixing things like that so the only one that I did have fixed was my Vel Satis. The dealers had to change the door stay. It was about 70 if my memory serves me right.
I like to keep my cars in top order so this noise really annoys me. I did spray a load of WD40 in 2 weeks ago. It does seem a little better only doing it now 90% of the time as opposed to 100% of the time.
If you work out a fix, let me know.
