Question Door Hinge Cracking Sound E92

My door hinge makes a cracking sound at each of the three points the door stops at when you open it. It is also moving whilst its coming out

I've taken a picture of it can someone tell me if I need to get it into a garage or if they know what I can do to fix it

Does that screw need tightening - by hand it seemed pretty tight but I dont have anything to go on it

You have tried coating the arm in white lithium grease?

Question

Ill give that a go but its not the bar its the bit the bar goes into with the bolt on it. It moves around at the 3 positions the door stops at whilst opening and cracks each time

You know what I need to try and tighten that bolt ?

Tighten those three Torx bolts and lube the arm.

If no good, remove door card and remove from inside and replace it

Thumbs up

Mine did the same. Tightening the bolts cured it. An ordinary socket of the right size will do the job.
