The check strap on my drivers door (2001 SL320) has stopped working - this means that the door closes again whilst you're trying to get out the car! It's more annoying when the kids are trying to climb into the back seats...I can see fingers being trapped.

Is this a common problem & is it an easy fix?

Thanks

Mike

Hi mikew 1234,
Yes it is a common fault on earlier cars.
Not an easy fix, I believe you have to take most of the door apart to fix it.
Good luck.

Very easy to correct. Remove door panel and then 2 bolts and a pin. Part is inexpensive.
