The thing making the noise is called a check strap.

The noise can sometimes be cured by lubricating it with grease,then working the door backwards and fowards.Other times,it wears to such a degree that replacement is the only option.

If you need to replace it,then the door card will have to come off.I'm not sure how to do this,but hopefully someone else will.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
