GTV Door problems

Apologies if this has already been covered on a previous forum.

The drivers side door, has the usual hinges, but then there is an arm which seems to hold the door open, I know it's on all cars but I don't know the name of it!

On mine somehow the pin has come up and the arm is no longer connected, it's a small thing but a pain when you have to keep the door open with your knee!

I have tried to use brute force to put the two together again but no joy

Any ideas?

You are probably best to replace the door check strap, which can be bought from a dealer for under a tenner. You will need a ribe screwdriver to fit yourself though.

If it is the same part as I am thinking of then an allen key will also fit the screw heads.
