    Default Door popping open issue !

    Iím assuming this is to do with the cold spell weíre having but this morning I defrosted the car, opened the passenger door then closed it, it popped back open, I had to push it shut it around 4 times before it clicked shut, on the drive to work the door again popped open a further 3 times ! Luckily it did not fully open as it caught on the lock !
    Anyone else had this type of issue happen on an F56 ?

    Not had this happen on the F56 but it used to happen occasionally in the R53. As soon as the car warmed up inside it never did it again ...
    You only need two tools in life WD40 and Duct Tape. If it doesn't move and should use WD40 and if it moves and shouldn't use Duct Tape.

    Odd, never something I’ve came across. I know my R53 doors where a little difficult to open in the cold but other than that

    Been fine today, Iíll keep an eye on it, sales chap thought it may be a window drop issue but it dropped and raised ok when opened and eventually closed
