2007 XR with 140,000 miles. The driver's door (and others?) seems to swing open too easily or too fast or too something. My wife's vehicle is parked close to the Outlook in our garage and I'm paranoid I am going to bang it with my door sometime. I'm thinking maybe the spring in the hinge needs to be replaced. Anyone else have the same experience?

yes- look into that part on the door too see if its not catching.


also- you can hang a lengthwise strip of those pool noodle things-- between the cars- so it wont damage.

I think I found a hinge. Does anyone know how difficult these are to replace? It seems like it would be difficult to "compress" the spring without the leverage of the door.

I replaced the hinge. I wouldn't say it made a HUGE difference but I would say it seems to be more controlled and less likely to swing way open and bang something.

BTW: It was VERY difficult to adjust after replacement! I got it close and will probably have the local repair shop fine tune it next time it's in for something else.
