I don't think your door have quite enough mass to move the suspension parts (otherwise go a little lighter on the door banging ), might rather be a screw holding some panel in place. Check all the bushes / other plastics in that area.

Re: Shaky Wheels on a 146.

Had similar problems on a 156 once..
The nut holding the underengine tray had come off and when I closed the door it caused the tray to bounce along the shaft of the bolt causing a squeak.
New nut and proper washer - all was well.

Can't remember if the 146 has something similar - might be worth a look.
