Re: Cracking noise when opening/closing doors

To those of you suffering the check strap clicking, I remedied mine by spraying wd40 on the strap and particularly the rollers where the strap enters the door void. Thereafter, I worked the door back and forth giving additional squirts of wd40 periodically. Eventually the rollers freed and the mechanism ran smoothly. Then I applied clean lubricating oil to the mechanism to preserve lubrication. Since then I lubricate the mechanisms with a few drops of oil every month.
The process has so far been successful with no recurrence on the four Renaults I have had over the years.
Hope this helps.
