mines done this.....
remove the door seal (on the sill) and re fit.this will make it sit lower and not catch.
also on the door card put a beed of clear silicone on it so it sticks the panel to the door....

It's yet another known problem at MG-R I've heard so make them fix it. I just wish they'd make the cars better in the first place rather than have us all drive about with bits falling off, lol!

well the cars due to go back in for a "service" anyway, basically what the dealer missed in the pre-sale check before i picked up the car, so thats top of a growing list!!so hopefully it'l be fixed then along with the speakers, seats, number plates and badges!!lol, its a belting car that just keeps getting quicker-only because more and more of its falling off!!

I had this happen on my Rover 25, and also on my ZR. and whenever it goes back to the dealers they say "thats unusual, never heard of that happening before"....... what a bunch of w*****s.

I actually have got stuck INSIDE and had to kick the door open.

Imagine how hard it is to open the door when it stick and you aint got any door handles!

Must be lucky, never had this happen to mine.

I have had the door cards on and off a few times with various mods so maybe that has something to do with it

blaps you need to get the modefied clips from the dealers then before you put the card back on mastic the back of the door card put it back on let it dry its cold so remeber it will take longer to dry and then jobs a gooden if your not sure m8 your not that far from me im the other side of richmond pop over and il give you a hand to do it. iv got some proper body shop mastic which is strong s**t
