Default Popping Noise When Operating Front Door.

The driver side door makes a loud, distinct popping noise when opening or closing. The door feels like it is ratcheting / jerking when it pops. The noise sounds like it is coming from the vicinity of the small "bar" that attaches to the door frame and then disappears into the door when operating. The door is fine when fully opened or closed.

Any suggestions of how to fix this?

Thanks much

Are the hinges or the striker loose?

Nothing appears to be loose.

I would start with applying some lithium grease to those hinges!

Sorry I forgot to report back on this. I replaced the door check and that fixed the problem.

Case closed!
