    Driver s Door

    There is a clunking sound when I open my 2014 GTS driver's door about 2/3 open. Passenger side is fine. Any ideas?

    Not sure if the hinges are the same as earlier gen cars? If they are, just in front of the hinge are two sprung steel plates and there is a metal tab on the door that rolls over the top of the sprung steel plates, the plates may require some white grease, it is known for then to fatigue crack too, the outer sprung plate can drop down to the top of the side sill and if you are unaware it can take a chunk out of the bottom front of the door!

    Here's some pics of what Im talking about, (these pics are from my Gen II) as I said you may have a different set up. Hope it helps.

    I had that too. It sounded like the body panels were rubbing or getting caught. The 1st time to the dealer they greased it but that really didn't do too much. The 2nd time the had a body shop replace the hinge, paint it and rehang the door. Problem solved!

    My door had a tight spot about 2/3rds open. Just feel alike a slight bind and you can hear a small screech but you can feel more than hear.

    Both my doors creaked when opening. Hinges were replaced under warranty. After a few months, the creaking came back. The issue with the lithium grease is that you cant spray the back sides of the hinges without taking the door off. Which I really don't want to do.
