    Has anyone found a fix to this? I’ve seen a couple of forums about it. But haven’t found a fix.

    Any advice would be appreciated

    Thanks!

    Have you taken the doors off recently? One time I didn't quite tighten the bolt that holds the piece that prevents the door from opening too far and it made a clicking noise when I went to shut/open the door due to the shifting of everything. Maybe that's the issue?

    Huh... maybe try unbolting that part of the door and moving the foot back and forth to see if its that or if its internal. One thing you could just put a little coat of grease on or something and the other might be a little more involved with something loose on the door end...

    i have the solution........ DOORS OFF. no more open and closing there for not clicken noise. :LOL:.. all jokes aside i sprayed a little lithium grease on both joints on the door holder and it went away. if that doesnt work pull the plastic piece that hides the power plug for the doors and check the bracket for the cloth door stop.. but ill leand towards a little grease will fix it right up

    I tried some WD40.....haven’t put grease yet (I’ll give that a try) I loosened the door check bolt in order to try and move it a lil to see if that would help ( maybe I should try fully un hinging it and re bolting?! ) might give that a try.

    It’s funny cuz there are a couple of other threads on the forum about this....one from last year the other from this past June I believe. And it’s happened to quite a few who have removed the door and a few other who haven’t yet like myself.

    All are on the drivers side too coincidentally. I’m on a mission to find a fix. One guy had his door check replaced which fixed it others did the same but still encountered the clicking. Some simply have done your suggestions that did work. it’s strange

    lol if I only I lived where it’s nice all year round that would be a fantastic option!

    I’ll give the grease a try.....did you try this because you had the same clicking noise?

    Will do....

    I’m on a mission to figure this damn thing out. As it seems many have had this same issue and it’s always the drivers side door. And ones who haven’t reported it I believe is because they haven’t even realized it makes this noise yet ( watch a YouTube yesterday do a video on how to take your doors off...and his was making the same sound, he didn’t point it out tho)

    Just find it very strange that it does this and many have resolved it by tightening the door check bolt to putting some grease..to even having it replaced. Only issue is others have done the same thing and yet they still experience the click noise.

    Have you figured this out yet? Dealer said @JeepCares is aware of the issue and it's some sort of engineering flaw. Seems like there should be a TSB but since it doesn't affect safety or sales I doubt there will be one. Lithium grease didn't work. I'm going to see if it goes away once the weather warms up. To me it sounded maybe like a weld seam internal to the door flexing thus making the clicking sound.

    Unfortunately I haven’t found a solution....but we did find the cause in another post, a guy took apart the whole door to see that as you mention ones the beam over time comes apart as it is “glued” to the panel of the door. Seems over time of opening and closing seems to separate. I tried everything otherwise the grease the whole 9....nothing works. To be honest (I don’t even think about it much anymore) as only solution with the dealer is to replace the doors and and have new ones painted and put on. And to be honest there’s really no point in that solution as 2020’s are having the same issue occur. So you’re getting a new door yes...but inevitably that door will do that same down the road, as they haven’t corrected/redesigned that flaw.

    sorry man wish I had found a solution.

    @JeepCares where is the TSB for this? Dealer says it's an engineering issue and yet no TSB? I'm an engineer myself and if this were a known issue it should have been resolved already with the 2020 models.
