If an owner of a 2012 Fiat 500 complains of a clicking or clunking noise when opening/closing the right or left door, this may be due to an under-torqued or loose door check strap bolt.

Inspect both door strap bolts for looseness. If loose, remove the door check strap bolt and apply Mopar Lock and Seal Adhesive (P/N 04318031) to the bolt threads.

1) Check strap bolt. 2) Door check strap. 3) Gap/loose. 4) Body side hinge pillar. 5) Left hand door.
