My front, drivers side "door check strap" is shot. When i open or close the door, it makes a loud irritable "klack klack" noise. Im heading down to the dealer to pick one up (I heard they werent expensive).
My question is: How do i change it?? is this an easy process, or should i take it to a tech??

Pritty straight forward, simply remove the inner door panal, remove 3 10mm head bolts and the pin and replace. If you want to do a nice job, paint strap with touch up first to match your vehicle.
Note - the 3 10mm bolts usally come loose, use lock tite when re-installing.

MBZ.Ian is right. He pointed out the
same noise on my C280 a couple of months ago.
I inspected it later and found the three bolts
were loose. Upon tightening the noise was gone
and all o.k.

Isn't the biggest portion and problem of this job pulling the inner door panel? My armrest is unhooked, but I hesitate to pull the panel. It doesn't seem to be straightforward like a 123 panel.

Maybe one of these days I'll get brave and tackle it. There has to be a trick to it though. Do you have to pull straight up on the panel after everything is disconnected?

Remember to remove the 2 philip screws on the seat switch (if electric). The switch stops you from being able to slide up. Also the panal sticks on the top by the inner window seal.
Good luck
