    Hi all,

    This has happened over a short period of time and isn't a result of an accident. Basically, the passenger door is very hard to open and close. It feels very heavy and wont 'swing' closed like the other doors. If I use the same amount of effort for it that would close the other doors, it just stops when you let go (if that makes sense!)
    It's not sagging and has no issues latching.

    So it feels like it's a problem with the hinges - is this likely? I've never come across this on any previous cars.

    Thanks.

    As a starting point shoot a load of wd40 or similar into the hinges and work the door, if things improve re-do with spray grease

    Thanks for your reply. I'll give that a go and see what happens. As you can probably tell, I'm not mechanically minded at all! Ha.
