Front Door - Check Strap
Has anybody had a problem with the support which holds the check strap on the driver's door pillar, cracking away from the inside of the pillar, resulting in a cracking on opening and closing the door.
I first ran into this problem about 6 months ago, and approach the local dealer to see if this fitting was accessable from the rear of the pillar, and if a replacement could be fitted -NO
Enter the MIG welder. Fine until about two weeks ago when the weld started to crack away from the pillar, back to square one.
Now I know there is a different fitting on the 164 and 145/146, where the support is screw in the pillar. Has anyone tried this approach. Any info.
