Default Door stopper stuck in open position.

One day, my sprinter driver door opened normally but heard a clicking sound and then the door wouldn't close at all. I had to disassemble the door and loosen the bolt holding the stopper to the door to get it to close. Replaced the door stop assembly and thought you Sprinter owners might find this information useful. This part costs me $75.00.

Is that part found on the forward part of the driver door (hinged to the vehicle), or rear part of the driver door (which latches and locks to keep the door closed).

When people type "door stop," I see rubber wedge that goes in a building, to hold a door open.

One would think that this part is not replaced on many vehicles...my MY 08 had the drivers side replace under warrenty...beginning to question MB quality

There are a lot of crappy plastic and pot metal parts on these vans, just like about every other vehicle made today. It does provide an opportunity for after-market manufacturers, though, like the Riordan turbo resonator.

Just had mine give out today when I was running errands. Luckily, I had enough torx bits with me to remove the bolt on the door.

This exact problem has just happened to my front passenger door. And I just spent $700 to have the right side sliding door fixed! I'm hoping I can order that part and do it myself. I'll have to look around now to find out how to take off the door panel and get to that part. Any tips?

Yes, have a look with the search tool in the blue bar - there are "How To" guides on door card removal for the NCV3.
