Are the screws stripped? One is a left hand screw.

I have a BT7 whose drivers door won't stay open any more.  The passenger door is ok.

I have tried tightening the friction washer but it wont do any good.  There is a new "friction washer" installed but it doesn't do any good either.  The metal pieces have been "polished" over the years and are VERY smooth - like glass smooth.


What do other folks do to recover the friction need to keep the door open?
