Check strap question please

Hi, apart from stopping the door swing all the way back what other purpose does the check strap have?
The reason I ask, mine was making a clicking noise on the drivers door and although not broken it was really starting to annoy me. So I have had it replaced back at the dealers and it now sounds fine, BUT the door now shuts very very tight to the dashboard and I am sure that was not the case before. I cant even get a piece of paper between the door and the dash when the door is shut and although it looks good and neat the plastics etc are obviously rubbing when I go over bumps etc causing another annoying noise. Previous to this the car was rattle and noise free. I am taking it back to the dealers next week to have it checked but so that I don't look completely daft, does the strap have adjustment allowing movement of the door etc?
Does anybody know?
Thanks in advance
