Renault Espace - Door Check Strap Noise*FIXED*
May be of use to someone now or in the future.
Drivers door developed a load clicking when shutting at the 2 stages. Applied some spray grease to the door strap which made it worse ?!!!??
Anyway after some pondering and headscratching realised the nylon rollers were sliding instead of rolling and jerking at the notched profile of the strap. Cleaned rollers to allow them to roll - noise completely gone.
It could be that the mechanism is worn and this action is creating the noise. Could'nt understand what had changed since I last had the car (no occurance before). Could have been lubricant applied at the Service.
