    Help.. Loose door hinge, loud clicking.



    I moved the rubber grommet out of the way.

    Is it simply a matter of tightening that bolt down? I guess so, but I figure I may as well ask before trying. I don't have the proper tool for whatever that's called anyway. What is it and should I get the proper tool to tighten it down? I guess I could try a regular wrench and a rag or something.... maybe a driver. I don't want to shred it.

    Thanks.

    But If I say something like, "Please don't put stuff on the trunk or roof. Put it on the sunroof instead. It won't scratch", I get that BS from them. Slam the seatbelt clip in the door jam and it's the seatbelt's fault, right? Click here to enlarge. Whatever the case, I have to deal with it. This is kinda normal wear & tear, I guess.....

    Tighten that bolt down. E10 or E12 socket. Will solve all the noise issues.

    My girls car had the same problem, BMW replaced the door at their own actual BMW repair shop, and left it loose.

    She heard it when she went to pick up the car, said something to the manager who promptly said we can look at it but it will cost you an $127 for an hours diagnosis. $#@!s, you just put the door on!


    When she got home I took a look and fixed it in all of about 5 seconds.
