My guess would be the little thing that keeps it from swinging freely.

I know what you mean, the hook that stops the door from opening further at the hinge. Wonder how it broke?
Hurled the door open for extra-style points in a pedestrian encounter? :D

Actually, sounds like a weak brake, since the brake broke. Tough break.:p
Gimme a brake, John! :D

Better yet, give it to Sean if you've got one handy. :angel:

"but seriously, folks..."

Does anyone else find the design and feel of the door opening "notches" really crappy? I have only had my wagon for 6 weeks, but when I open the driver's door to get out, the resistance to get the door open past the first "notch" (or the second) seems high, but once I get past that, the holding force to keep the door open in that position while I get out is minimal - the door just drifts closed while I'm halfway out. Seems like the camming action is backwards. Just me?
