Popping or Groan Noise When Opening or Closing One or More of the Vehicle Doors on Jeep Commander

A popping or groan type noise may occur when opening or closing one or more of the vehicle doors. This may be caused bu insufficient lube on the lower hinge roller axle. Applying a small amount of grease between the roller pin and the inside surface should correct this concern. Our technicians tell us if the grease is not applied in the correct location, the noise will remain.

I have tried to remedy myself. Thanks for the info will take into my auto techs to take care off. Makes my Jeep sound like a rust bucket!
opening and closing any of the 4 doors makes the popping/groaning noise. Every so often they need additional lubricant. In my opinion I feel the doors are too heavy for the type of hinge/spring mechanism. The doors open and close with spring/tension I have never experienced on numerous makes of vehicles. Design, Lube, Weight, Push, Pull possible flaws are my assessment.
