Default '06 db9

Hello, I own a 2006 Aston Martin DB9 and the doors raise up about 15 degrees when you open them (so as not to hit a curb) and was wondering if there was an adjustment on them to increase the tension on the spring because when the car is slightly inclined the door will not stay open ?
Thank you,
TK

Default Door struts

I have the same car and experienced the same unwanted door closing. There are no springs as such to hold open the doors rather they each have a small gas strut to keep the doors from closing. The replacement is not too difficult if you have the tools and ability. The dealers want a fortune to change the struts but I was able to purchase the OEM door AND hood (bonnet) struts for less than $150. There is a thread somewhere with detailed instructions on how to change them.
Best
Bill
