Question rear door passenger side stuck open 560 SEL

Since I don't use that door much I had been unaware of any problem until two days ago when I noticed that it did not want to open all the way obviously something was hanging up inside the door . Today I open the door and it had the same problem only when I tried to close the door it has been put in a bind and will not budge so it is stuck open. my manual is the basic Chilton and has little or no information about door panels were body parts .

I'm on my way back out to the car now to the see if I can find a way to remove the panel and find what has put the door holder mechanism (the part that holds the door open) in a bind.

Any help such as a schematic or a brief description of this assembly would probably help me out a lot.

This is my third Mercedes 300 turbo diesel --450 SELand my current and my favorite the 560 SEL

check back later Thanks Miles Mulloy

Look at the DIY article on top of this page!

Under door check strap. That should solve your problem.

The bearings in the metal strap that connects the door to the chasis post have jammed... probably due to rust or wear. To check out the assembly you have to remove the door panel. Small 10mm bolts hold the strap assembly to the inside of door hollow. If the strap assembly is salvageable ... try greasing the bearing that slides along the track. If not, a new assembly can be purchased readily from parts shop.
