A really loud complex creak when you put any weight on the back of the door arm rest. It's driving me nuts but I can't see a way of stopping it, so am just refraining from resting my arm there!Confused Anyone got any ideas please?

I think you need to see what the problem is by taking off the door panel, carefully prise up the window switch from the arm rest and disconnect, then on the door handle carefully lever off the end cover strip using a flat blade (maybe an inch wide) not a screwdriver, less chance of breaking it, undo the two screws then pull out the door release lever to pull off the handle. Then you can then go around the outer edge of the door panel with something like a wallpaper stripper tool with tape on so you donít scratch the paint, and carefully lever it out and lift it up and off, an odd lug may break but if youíre careful they shouldn't. Thatís why I always put grease on them before refitting,

Spanner I did have the decency and clicked thanks button which confirmed you had been thanked.. so I did honest. It shows a '1' against the word thanks so it should have thanked you I hope. Anyway thanks again for the description of how to tackle the job. As the car is in warranty I think I'll wait till the next service though. I'm bound to break something.

Sorry I missed that, but it would still be nice to see if what Iíve suggested was of any use.
