    Palio door stoppers making loud khat khat noise

    My 10 yr old Palio front doors are making a hell lot of khat khat sound when you open/close to 3 phases. I've tried to use grease & W40 but in no vain. The sound doesn't reduce at all. Mechanics have told it needs to be replaced. Unfortunately they are not easily available on the counter so either hunt through scraps or order a new one.

    I just found it on 99rpm which is mentioned as "Door Check" costing 1151/- each :(

    Has anyone replaced and saw any difference over the period?

    Ankoor our MFW member from Pune had pinged me about the same issue he faced in his Palio. This is what the conversation went about.

    He says: "He (mechanic) cut the small pieces of the Saline Tube which doctors uses for Patients and placed it in the that part of doors."

    "He unbolted this nut and put the piece of saline tube (size approx 10 mm long) inside the cavity and then bolted it back. Sound vanished after this experiment."

    It has been working for him since a year! This is a wonderful jugaad to fix a problem instead of replacing. I would surely like to give it a try myself


    P.S. Thanks @Ankoor for sharing this
