    Does anybody else have an issue with the front inside door panels feeling a bit loose? What I mean is, that when I pull on the handle to close the door and I don't pull hard enough the doors don't close because the handles have some give on them. You can actually push and pull them and they will move about a 1/4 of an inch and kind of click. Is this normal or should I take it in to have a tech look at it?

    It sounds like the door panel was removed for some reason & now the Door Panel retainers are bad & not holding.

    I'd take it to the dealer & have new ones put in unless your comfortable doing it yourself.

    But both front doors are the same. Its a small fix though and won't make things worse if they pull the panels off?

    Apparently your Hellcat is rejecting you. Drive downtown Calgary and drop it off with me. I believe that is your only hope for happiness. ;)

    In Canada we have the "Lemon Law" and it sounds to me that you need to paint the car yellow...just kidding.
    Have it checked out by the dealer. Sounds like you have a good one!;)

    Hummm? If both are the same I'm not sure what's up. Just sounds like the center retainers are gone or bad. Have you tried pushing firmly in the center of the panel? If it locks or pops in for a bit until you pull it hard. You said it is clicks. That tells me the ribs on the retainer is not holding.

    They are all like that , the screw in the door pull cup feels loose when you pull the door closed. You don't need to remove the panels just pop the screw cover off and tighten the Phillips screw a little more. There are only 3 screws holding front door panel on . One under the handle to open the door , one at the door pull handle and one that holds that little rubber donut. The rest of the panel is held in with plastic pins
