    Crack in back of drivers door!!! HELP

    Hi, ive a 98 1.8 mk4 sport. I just noticed 2day that theres a crack about 5mm long on the inside of the door (when u open the door and look at the end of it, the crack runs from the level wher the window stopd, on the inside only)

    How can this be fixed? welded and re-sprayed? the other doors, b-pillars, boot etc everything else is ok, just this wee crack in the drivers door.

    Very common problem with the Astras due to the doors being slammed. I think it's covered by the warranty.

    I had cracks in my doors on my 3door, the dealership i bought it from filled and resprayed them but the cracks slowly came back-They replaced both doors FREE of charge after a few months of pestering them!
