    Default Door-Check(s) "pop" - How to fix?

    I first replaced with an after-market... Then new from my local Chrysler-dealership. They still "pop". Help?

    If you don't know what the "pop" is... That's a good thing!

    Is it greased?

    Found some solid-pins with a top-lip that fit snugly into the hinge-hole(s). Some improvement.

    Removed the pin... Replaced with a tip-threaded smooth-shaft bolt... Secured with a nut. More improvement.

    Observed the tighter I tightened... The quieter the "pop" became. Tightened until the loud "pop" was silenced. Seem compensation for a bad design.

    I do hear a dull "snap" sound with the door-check move between positions. I first thought of going to my local Walmart to find other Cherokees of the same with un-locked doors to compare sounds... Then I thought better.

    Ha ha, some soccer mom will run you down with a shopping cart. I think I know what you mean. I use a spray on lithium grease on door parts. Works for me. Fixed what I think you are describing on the wife's car that way

    Default Door-Check(s) "pop" - Fixed!

    Thanks for all the good advice... No more "pop"!

    Although, I thoroughly greased the door-check guts... Like suggested... The focus of the solution was the hinge.

    I tried many iterations... The final is: 1) The pin/bolt must fit snug in the hinge-holes 2) If a bolt is used in place of the pin, as I did, where the arm rides on the bolt must be smooth/no-threads 3) A spacer(nylon) is needed between the arm and hinge.
