WD40 is a solvent not a lubricant. Try using some white lithum grease or fluid film instead.

I'll get a picture of what it is in the next few days. Very easy fix.

I also hose down my hinges pretty good after a good amount of rain. That usually takes care of things for a few months.

Very Simple. The hard plastic wheel in the lower hinge works as a stop against a formed plate with rubber behind it. The wheel turns as the door opens and catches that plate to hold the door from closing back on you as you are entering or leaving.
The wheel had sized on its pivit at one time or another from lack of lubricant and has a flat spot in it now and the center pivit hole may also be enlongated. If the wheel is moving free now , the flat part will make a popping noise when it hits the formed catch plate. You need to replace that lower hinge. Don't think you can just replace that wheel.

The wheel can simply be turned so that dimple doesn't click. At least that's what I did to mine.
