    People keep slamming my door

    My car is a b7 cabriolet and anytime someone gets into it they slam the door shut. Even if i told them 2 seconds before that the doors are very light make sure you do not slam it. Its really pissing me off and i can now start to hear the passenger side rattle a bit. Before long im going to wack one of the ass*****. So frustrating.

    Can somebody please tell me is there a way to stop the door slamming so easily. Maybe tighten check strap or something. Any ideas?

    Cheers

    Ban them from the car and make them get the bus, that will soon stop them.

    Yeh too true. I hate it too Just because the doors seem heavy, they seem to think you have to slam the door....No respect Quality cars you dont need to slam just shut lightly.. then they get fingerprints on the a post lol....dont get me started on the boot

    As much as I continue to tell them, my wife and kids seem to understand that when another door or window is open, they don't have to apply so much force. They just think I'm grumpy.

    Best passenger story was when I dropped my wife off in town and a pensioner started clanging his walking stick on the side of my RS whilst trying to get in. Not many taxis can be RS Blue.

    HAHA, the joy of door slammers, my mate kept doing it to mine, must be because he owns a BMW and isnt used to quality car. I had a similar creek from my A3, drove me mad. Trouble with these German cars are the doors are quite heavy and some of the older VAG stuff suffers from the dreaded door drop. You need to slam the door hard on my 1967 Land Rover to get that thing closed though.

    Has this thread died a death or can I ask a question?


    Are there any useful guides / hints on how to fix rattles / squeeks from windows on A4 cabs?

    Thanks
