How do I stop that popping noise when I open
my door on my 98 and newer Rodeo or Amigo?
First make sure the door check is tight. Then tighten the two 10mm head nuts on the door. Now, drive the pin at the door check up and remove the pin. Then remove the plastic bushing.
Now install the new brass bushing from your local "Planet Friendly" Isuzu dealership.
The part number is: P/N 8-97302-978-0
Then reinstall the pin and your done. You will be much happier with the sound from your door. If your truck is still under the 3-year, 50,000 mile warranty Isuzu will cover it for you.
You can see the difference between the old bushings and the new ones below.
This will take you about 10-minutes to do.
