Drivers Door

Hi all

The door stop on the drivers door of my IS200 has developed an annoying click/crack type noise when opening and closing. I know where its coming from as I have had this on other cars but can it be solved by lubricating/greasing? Or do I have to whip off the door card and replace some part inside the door?

Any help/advice much appreciated.

Gavin :)

Just an update on this one.

After speaking to one of the mechanics @ Lexus Belfast and making enquiries as to what this problem was he said that it is usually the little pins on the check straps that cause this clicking noise :blink:

He said that the check strap mechanism on the IS200 rarely gives trouble.

So I picked up two pins (one for each front door) and put them in when I got home. To my surprise the clicking had gone :D

So if anyone has an IS with this problem then it can be easily sorted out. I know its only a minor gripe but I found it an extremely annoying one :angry:

Cheers

Gavin :)

P.S. Part # for the pin is 6861720011 and they are £2.39 each :winky:

I had the same problem, sounded terrible, lexus cambridge greased it first of all & it stopped for a day..then they changed the pin in the strap..all sorted now, apparently the securing pin wears after a while...mine started after about six months..so must have had a dodgy one in the first place!
