So that was enough now.

I can't count the times I had to deal with these factory stopgap of the door stopper's linkage to the A-pillar. I'm using a stopper from a 3-series with two positions. So whenever opening the door I've got this 

KNOCKNOCK.

Huuaargh.

To be erased, this.

By something solid.

A very small piece of sheet metal was wrapped around the M6 tapper's square drive. Now it fitted into a ratchet extension. Some alignment by eye and downdrill:

Followed by a cultivated downbolt of an inhex M6. The latches on the pillar have already a bore of 5mm what's the base bore to tap with M6.

Well, the bolt's thread will probably cut the plastic bushing of the lever into a spring but this will take some time and for the moment it's absolutely noiseless.

Later I maybe going to lathe brass bushings that can be pressed into the lever.

Sorry if this is an old solution.

the pop or knock is the result of the wrong size pin

I hate those rivets with a passion. They are impossible to get out,

they wear, rust, tear the tab off the body, and don't really stop the

door in the event of a strong gust of wind.

Yes and it can also be caused by the bracket being loose on the door frame.  Rivets can fix that quickly.
