Driver Door Hinge gets stuck/stiff

Hey Guys,

Had my 2014 limited WK2 for a month now. A few days ago the driver side door started to feel very stiff to close..i had to force it to close and when i do it gives off a large crack noise 2-3 times..

I've had this happen on old cars but not one that is 1 month old.

Anyone else had this issue or heard of??

thanks

Mine did. Found the chrome trim from the door was hitting the in the top corner.

Re: Driver Door Hinge gets stuck/stiff

I have this bad. I get a loud pop or bang. I have isolated it to the bottom hinge (the one with the factory indents to hold the door in place) on the door. I cant seem to get lube in the hinge to completely silence it. WD40 work briefly (as expected light oil would) but White Lithium grease wont get int there to quiet it.
