This is for a 1981 240D, but I would guess that it applies to many different models. My doors were not closing easily, so I replaced the door catch. The female part of the latch that is attached to the body. It was just amazing that now the door closes easily. Anyway, it looks like the only part that wears out is the nylon piece that hits the corresponding latch in the door. My question is instead of replacing the whole catch, can you just replace the nylon piece?
