Hi all!

My drivers door lock has developed a fault. It was getting stiffer to open until eventually, the handle came off in my hand!

The metal bar that the handle moves is very stiff when the door is closed, but seems to work fine when door is open.

Do I just need to give it a blast with some WD40, or is it more serious? Can open the door from outside fine.... so I currently have to open the window to get the door open. Not classy......

Help!!

When I acquired mine it didn't open very well, eventually I broke the handle. Got a new handle but was not much better, I ended up bending the metal rod slightly so that for the same handle movement it gave more 'pull'. Works OK now, but I did break the retaining clip when doing this - I need a new one. I've a feeling that the door has sagged a tiny bit, I'm guessing putting more stress on the door when its closed - is yours sagging?
