Closing the doors when on the sun


In these hot days twice happened both left doors on my car (Alfa Romeo 147 1,9 JTDm 2007) wont close. Temperature shows 42 degrees of C and more. Solution is to put the car off the sun and turn on air conditioning to LO. After around 20 minutes everything work just fine.

Any suggestions?

New door seals, they might be worn and they will become very soft in the sun which will make them useless when you close the door. Does the door lock stict on open and this is why it wont shut because then you will have to get some copper grease on it as maybe the grease in yours is worn too.
