    Default stiff/sticky door handle

    A number of people try to open my passenger door and find it wont open. Left handed, thumb on the non moving part of the handle it pops easily enough but it is evident it is not opening as easily as it used to nor as easily as the drivers door.

    Any thoughts on the cause/solution for a DIYer?

    pull the handle & put a few drops of 3 in 1 oil on the part of the handle that goes inside the door , work the handle a few times & it will free up nicely , mine did .

    Thought i would give a quick update, ta for the advice worked like a charm, unusual for just a drop of oil to be all you need in a car these days.
