door strap popping

I am not sure of what the door strap looks like but be sure to check the connection to the jamb. My Porsche uses a removable pin to attach to the jamb. It was popping on opening. I replaced the strap mechanism and the pop continued. Thinking the metal was fractured, I put in a reinforcement kit. It still popped. I finally discovered that the pin was not fully forced into place. One tap with a hammer and it was fixed. The attachment to the jamb will get the most abuse. Good luck.
