    Anyone else had this issue? It's been getting progressively worse and I've only had the phone 11 months. Not sure if getting hold of a new battery door will help either, it seems to be an issue with the phone body as well as the door.

    I found it a bit finicky and it does take a little pressure. Are you using the stock battery? It was much worse for me when I used the 3rd Party batteries.

    If only.

    I've been removing the battery quite a lot recently (bootloops, CM7 nightlies..) and I think some of the plastic from the door clips has become lodged in the housing. basically it's difficult to use the vol down button and the door protrudes about half a mil from the case.

    Hopefully I won't have to order a new back/chassis!

    I had what I think must be the same problem when I first got my DHD. The battery cover was just slightly mis-seated and, as a result, the volume controls were hard to use, even when the battery was removed. Looking closely (through a magnifying glass), it was clear that one of the areas that should secure the cover was slightly mis-formed. In my case I think it was a moulding issue although, for you, it might be the result of slight damage. I shaved the extra material away using a scalpel and this cured the problem.
