Sometimes I think my Micra has just decided to slowly start falling apart.
I came home to find that "the drivers door wont close" so my wife was having to crawl through from the passenger
side each time she used the car. I don't think I could even do that.
From what I could tell the 2 bolts that hold the stopper in the door had no loctite & the lower one came loose.
The lower bolt was bent & the metal was a little deformed where it attaches to the door.
With a sickening clunking noise I got the door to open & close.....added some lithium grease & it was OK
but no detent stopping at all as the arm was now bent. The door closes on its own if left open.
I purchased the new stopper & 3 new bolts + a set of panel removal tools to attempt the swap.
Wish me luck!
BTW the door stopper bolts for the rear door DO have blue loctite & were tight.
