VW Passat b6

The youtube video below illustrates the noise as it happens i.e. when opening or closing the door.


After much research and analysis, i successfully found the solution on my own. The round metal glides should not be loose as it will not move in sync with the door; You should just pop-up the plastic cover that protects a 14mm bolt and tighten it. It’s as simple as that.

If i did not find that solution, the part would have costed at least 60US$ on ebay + labour. You will find below the hinge we are talking about in which it is actually upside down in this picture.
