Door Straps

How long are the door straps supposed to last? I bought two door checks about 6 months ago from partsshop and put them in. And now one of them is completely broken. And the other door is squeeking really really loudly, and the door wont open all the way. It will get stuck closing too and i will have to force it closed. Were they defective? How long do they last? Am I supposed to put more greese on them on top of how they came? Did I do something wrong? thanks.

Check you window seals!

MOst likely water is coming in between the window and the rubber seal. The door straps have a plastic cover to prevent this. Usually it is not a problem without them but, if your weather seals are bad... Check with your dealer or...PartsShop may have them too.
