Noises in the area of the doors

In this case, the customer complains of an unpleasant creaking or jarring noise when opening or closing the doors.


A closer look at the door mechanism revealed that the fastening screw of the door check strap had come loose.

(It is possible that all doors can be affected).


- Disassemble the fixing screw

- Check the mounting hole and the screw for damage (thread, etc.) and repair or replace if necessary

- Tighten the fixing screw to torque as specified by the vehicle manufacturer (22Nm) (see picture)

- Repeat this procedure for all doors

-Fixing screw (ASA M8x22) OE No. 07147248803

Caution: Electric vehicle!
