Default New Vert Owner!

Hey everyone,

I just bought my new '05 Cruiser! It's got 54k miles on it, but no issues whatsoever. The only thing I've found wrong with it is the door makes a pop-sound at certain spots when opening it.

Any ideas?

I'll post pictures very soon. Sadly, it's snowy and gross outside, so it won't be pretty. xD

Welcome to the Forum. Please fill out your Profile. The popping sound may be because the hinges need some lubing.

The popping sound is the door checker. (The black square rod that holds the door open). It's not real expensive, and not real hard to change, but the door panel has to come off for access. I had one replaced under warranty when the car was fairly new, and it shut up for about a year then the new one started doing the same thing!

Uh oh. Sounds like an easy fix though. Where would I find the part?
