In this article, I will show you how to fix this annoyance in less than 20 minutes.

First you need to remove your door panels. If you don’t know how, there are articles on this site to guide you.

Second, locate the two rods that come from your lock and door handle and move towards the rear inside of the door. The lock rod is the one that sticks. It sticks to the two plastic “hooks” (shown below) which hold it close to the door and back in the door where the actual lock mechanism is. You need to clean the rod and lube it up with your choice of lubricant. Also you need to spray some lube back on the linkages of the mechanism.

“Clips” which hold the rods to the door (red boxes) and the mechanism, which is behind the door (red arrow):
