RB38R7837S9 fridge freezer - clicking bottom hinge

Hi all, I had to change the doors round on this appliance many months ago when I first received it (what an awful job!), it was alright for a while but lately the bottom freezer door hinge makes an almightly clunking sound as the door is closing, just before it fully shuts.

I'm guessing I'll need to take it apart again to check it out again, but has anyone else had this issue?  Anyone able to hazard a guess at the problem?  Thanks!

As a guess maybe the screws / bolts on the hinge bracket have loosened off a bit ?

You were right - a small screw holding a plastic fixing to the bottom metal hinge plate had worked loose, tightened it down and applied some threadlock to try to prevent it working loose again, seems fine now and fingers crossed it stays that way - thanks again 😎
