Door cracking... but not?!

Hi,
Our ‘53 TDI 75 has developed a horrendous noise opening t he door BUT I don’t think it’s the normal issue. I removed the check strap mechanism entirely and the sound persists - only on opening suggesting that it’s a problem on the A-pillar side rather than the door.

Does anybody have any suggestions before I remove the door to investigate please?
Thanks!

Check the door above the hinge for aluminium fatigue. Some A2s have suffered cracks in this area and at one point in time Audi provided an approved repair.

As depronman says hinges on the door.
This happened to me it was the bottom hinge on mine tightened up all fine now.
