    This door hinge has started to have a click noise everytime it is opened and gets to the point it's at in the picture, I have tried abit of wd40 to see if it was abit dry on the joint

    Second issue is the boot trim which the boot latch locks into the joint on the left side is like this

    on the right side it looks like this

    this is the part I am referring to

    the part on the inside of the boot is scratched to **** so if anybody has part numbers or any idea of costs for the part

    many thanks

    btw ignore the rubbish and dirtyness I was going to the tip then coming back and giving it a clean

    Don't bother replacing the boot trim, new one will get scratched anyway, so don't waste your money & as for fitment, its not exactly bad tbh as I've seen loads & some are slightly of one side, it may need slightly manipulating into the side carpet loops you cant see as they're hidden behind & it has a locating tab, unless its loose & easily pulled away, I would leave it as it is, trust me a royal pita to get straight sometimes.

    Use spray grease on the hinges, wd40 will run of mostly, whereas spray grease will stay static.

    Hinges will still be under warranty I'd have thought.
