    Link Door STOPPER failure

    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.

    The new part is installed & works great!
    Now I dont have to worry about my drivers door swinging open
    on its own & hitting the parked car beside me or having it close on its own when open.
    I added some washers to the lower bolt as the metal underneath was dented in.
    I will add blue loctite later to the bolts when I can get to my other set of tools which has 2 tubes.
    I hate buying tools & supplies when I know I have them already.
    The old part was pretty mangled.
