My driver's side door started to make a binding, popping noise when I opened it. Thought it was the hinges so I greased them but no improvement. I took it in to Mercedes and they told me that the door stop needed to be replaced. Searched the 171 forum but did not find anything. Has anyone replaced the door stop before? Thanks.

Door hinge bolts

Hey Jeff. Looked through all of the threads. From my inspection, seems like the two "bolts" through the hinge and into the door are recessed into the hinge (can't really see without taking the entire door off, which I was trying to avoid.). Do you know if they are torx head bolts and what size they may be? Thanks. Ken

The bolts that attach the door hinge to the door. They might be torx heads. I will need to use a mirror to be sure but I will check.
