    common on the 05/06 for it to squeak over time.. There is no way to get grease/lubercant into the squeaky area..

    They changed the hinge style at some point I forget the 'manu date' but had mine swapped under warranty when it was still valid and the hinges looked different making me look at the Wife's 07 Charger and it had the same style as the replacements..

    Remember to paint the hinges before replaceing them.

    Thank you for the info, I took my magnum to the dealer said it wasnt covered under warranty (have the extended) would have to take to a body shop, body shop told me it would be $400 to fix....Yeah Right! My magnum has been in the shop (a friend of a friends shop) for 2 days now, should be getting it back tomorrow. Thanks again for the info.

    The door hinges on these suck hard. Mine makes noise too. The newer designed hinge looks like an old GM type, not sealed like these shiddy ones are.

    I would take a driver's side upper hinge if you got one. PM me with an offer.

    05-06 door hinges are mercedes hinges-the 07-2011 ARE Delphi aka GM dog leg hinges..
    just wait till the bushing in the pressure wheel for the 3 step dog leg goes bad on the up dated crap. THE benz hinge is way better.

    Well, my "Benz" hinge has been making noise for over a year now, and the car is only 5 years old. I've never heard of anyone having to change door hinges every 4 years on any GM car...or any car ever made for that matter, not even a Yugo.

    I have the newer updated hinges sitting on my work bench, where they've been for a year now. But the clicking noise is finally taking enough of a toll on me that they should be getting done this weekend when the bumper comes off. And they are just getting spray bombed since whos going to actually see them?
