When I open the drivers door, I hear a click, this is due to a bolt (on check strap?) rising everytime when I open the door. Ie the bolt is not sitting flush through.. (Will take a pic ****) does any one know the most effective way to fix? Remove bolt or hammer it in, or change the check strap? If it is called the check strap?

If it is a bolt a socket set will help, just tighten it, DO NOT FOR THE LOVE OF GOD BASH IT IN WITH A HAMMER!, you'll strip the threads and make it worse.

Cool! :) I will take a pic ****

I have the same problem, but its on the passenger side instead. It clicks a few times aswell when opening the door, not just once. Quite annoying.
Has anyone experienced this before and fixed it?
Someone please give us a fix! Will post some pictures soon and explain thoroughly later

I have used a mole grip to turn the bolt in, and so far, so good, its not moving back out for now... we will see how it goes as the door gets used on a daily basis...

Have you ever had the door "blown" open by strong wind?

I can't remember off the top of my head if the civic check strap has roller bearings or springs, but it sounds like they have been damaged at some point or the the bolts holding it onto the door have came loose.

It's either 2 10mm or 8mm bolts that hold it in place, see if they are tight, if they are I'd get a new check strap.

When you say what side? I need drivers side... But that pic is for what side door?

When you say door trim, you mean the door card??

Yeah, the door card.

When you order it just say its the drivers side you need.

Bugger, door card needs to come off too... Shall I leave this to Honda to sort out? Difficult job?

Plus what number is that on here... Cannot find it.

Pretty easy, don't go near honda for this.

They'll be a how-to on here somewhere for taking the door card off.
