I've had a similar, although opposite problem with my 350SD. The driver door sticks shut and I have to give it a shoulder-thump to open from the inside and I have to yank it from the outside to open. It has been getting pretty annoying, but I have not had time to try fixing it since my wife is due (with our first child - a daughter) in 16 days!

If there is something easy I can check, please let me know - and remember, I am just a saxophone player, not a mechanic! I can fix things pretty well myself, but I sometimes don't know the name of parts, etc... for example, what part is the 'door check?'

Sorry for the ignorance - any help will be greatly appreciated!
