I believe it's the check arm. It is between the two hinges and there is a pin holding it attached to the driver's side post and two bolts securing some sort of holding device within the door that the bar has slipped from. At this point it flops inside the door cavity when the door is open and makes a horrible racket (two clunks) when the door is closing and opening. How easy is the fix on this or do I take it back in to the shop?

You've identified the rascals to a tea.
You've also identified the fastening items.
What is remaining is removing the door panels.
This can be somewhat tricky.
I would suggest looking at a Chassis Manual for the little tricks in removing the window/power seat escuhion. The panel too has it's own way of being removed. There may be a DIY forum as well.
The door checks are relatively cheap, mail order $13-14.00, from a dealer, $24-26.00.
Try Fast Lane for an even better price and delivery.
My 1987 300E has had these replaced this year, all four. The left rear door stuck open when the check broke. I decided to replace them all.
