Re: door feels like its sticking
The check strap is what prevents the door from opening close to 90 degrees.
Its usually midway between the upper & lower hinges.
You can possibly undo the hinge with this strap in place, but access will be quite limited. undoing the check strap will allow the door to open more, thus allowing more access.
You'll need to see if your socket set can fit with it in place, before you decide.
This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
