    Has anyone else experienced the back door partially getting caught when opening it. I have to close it again, and then open again to be able to open the door completely.

    Not here. Can you tell where it's catching? Hinge, body metal bumping, glass onto trim? Other? Has it been like this all along, or did it just start recently?

    Just seems to have started recently, it feels like it's catching onto the hinge, definitely not the glass onto trim.

    I had the interior rear door panel fall off after it started catching a few times. A bolt to hold it in place wasn’t put in in the factory. Check to see if the door panel is loose and catching. Mobile tech fixed it and confirmed the bolt wasn’t put in at factory. Easy fix for me.

    Thank you

    Just tried it a few more times, this time the window didn't fully come down to allow the door to be opened, and got stuck at the top.
