    The rear doors on my car are very reluctant to stay in position when open, even on the gentlest of inclines! It's a bit of a pain when i'm trying to get the boy in in his car seat to have it swinging onto the back of my legs!

    Anyone know the best way to stiffen them up so they hold in place?

    Replace the door stay, or check strap as they are also known. Easy enough to do

    They look like this

    Cheers, i assume they're all the same from each model, so a trip to the local scrappy should suffice?
