Thanks, The joints aren't loose. The bodywork also is in good condition. I think the problem is the wood rubbing against the metal door frame. Is there any way of "sealing" the gap between the wood and the metal? Odly enough the problem only affects the one door. My mechanic suggests taking the door apart and sticking the wood down which would take 2 hours and cost a fotune. Peter
I've got the same problem with the rear right door - creaking most of the time. It is definitely the wood causing the problem on mine, so I intend to remove the wood and smear the adjoining faces with silicone grease and refit.
The wooden door surrounds should be bedded on dum-dum which used to be available in tins, though I haven't needed any for some years. It deadens sound. I see there is some for sale on Ebay:http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/DUM-DUM-PASTE-SMALL-TIN_W0QQitemZ8053279339QQcategoryZ30923QQcmdZViewItem 8053279339
