I had to tighten these once when the van was a few months old and have had no trouble for almost 18 months since.

LOL, the blue marks are QC for the factory just what you say is missing! No problems in my first 30,000mi. Those nuts are self-locking I believe. Have the service guys fix it and move on.

I would know when mine would come loose because I would hear click click click when I would open the door, and then I would finger tighten them and a few days later I would hear from them again. After about a dozen times of this I got a wrench on it and haven't heard from them sense.
I guess that guy at the plant needs to adjust his air wrench.

Same here.....the click click kept getting worse on my driver side door , thought it might need grease/oil on hinges. Did a search on forum and found this thread , then i checked the bolts , they had loosened about a quarter inch :eek: 10 mm to tighten

When mine worked loose, the thump-thump-thump as I opened the door kept bringing to mind a song:
Thump-thump-thump, "we will, we will rock you".
