Re: door check mechanism

Thank goodness I'm not alone in having this problem! In desperation I attempted to drill a hole in the centre of the top of the silver box that presumably contains the door check mechanism, but it seemed pretty solid. I did manage to squirt some WD40 in and detected a very slight improvement. However, it is obvious that something is definitely wrong inside. I am inclined to try to drill a hole elsewhere in the silver box and try again with WD40. But the car belongs to my daughter and I don't want to cause any permanent damage to the component. Good luck!
