Clicking noise when opening driver's door

Just wondering if anyone else is getting a clicking noise when opening their door? I traced it to the rubber gasket at the lead edge of the door, it flexes as the door is opened and then when it gets to a certain point (about half way open) it snaps back. Just a trivial issue but wondering if anyone else is experiencing this.

I noticed the seal is touching the door panel. So they replaced seal without charge?

I took mine to the dealership and they fixed it. They did not replaced it but what they did is pushed the fender edge panel inside so it does not touch the seal. Lousy job though. I noticed a lot of dent along the edges of the panel but you wont see it on the outside.

Yes had this issue too. My door would click going over bumps. Took it to the dealer and they fixed it. The trouble was also the front rubber on the door.

It wasn't until I read this thread that I also noticed this "click" or "flick" of the rubber seal as I opened the driver's door. It was a little past the first "notch" in the hinge assembly that the "click/flick" is heard. I can see the leading edge of the seal on the door catches on the rear vertical edge of the fender. I also can see from the driver's seat that the rubber seal inside the front fender has a tear in it. Not sure if that is a result of the "click/flick" but I will bring it up at my A1 (currently at 80% oil life).
My fear, as always with dealer repairs, is that the collateral damage that occurs during a simple repair is far more intolerable than the initial concern.

Could this be on every TLX? I will check mine today when I get home. I get a thump from under the rear bumper when I close the driver side door.

At best it could be limited to a specific batch of TLX's but of course that depends if Acura even picked this up on their end as an issue.

Time will tell.

That makes sense. I always think my car is one of the bad batch cause I actually got it on Sep 30th. I am sure there were only a handfull out there during that time.
