Two Mercedes, one question

Hi, my name is Johnathan and I have a 1977 240D and a newly acquired 1992 300E 2.6. Both cars run great and are a lot of fun to drive. My wife has taken over the 300E, but the 240D suites me fine.

I did have a question I could not find an answer for on the website. The driver's door has a very loud creaking and rubbing noise when it is opened or closed. I have tried WD 40, but that has not helped a bit. Every other door opens quietly.

Has anyone else had this problem? Is there a known fix?

Thanks and I am happy to be a member of the website.

Are you asking about the 420d or the 300e? On the 240e, them' greasable door hinges. But most likely, the drivers' door sees the most use and abuse. It's probably a bad door check strap. I would replace with a factory replacement one...
