Door hinge!

I checked my door hinge yesterday as it was making a noise when opening and closing, it was also tight in certain parts. It turns out the bottom screw was more or less out of thread, it was torx type I think!

Anyway I fixed it now and greased all the sliders for the door hinges

Re: Door hinge!

There was a recall on the 156 door hinges. Mine had all 4 changed.

Re: Door hinge!

My 2004 147 wasn't recalled,

My check strap snapped the other day! Wind took the door away with a huge bang. Neighbours came out, thought I had been shot!

Anyhoo, thankfully no damage and just picked up my new check strap and door mechanism (as one unit) from dealer at a little over £12. Noticed it's been modified from the broken one I took off on my three door 147.

Always thought the hinges and mechanism were a little weak for the three door version...
