    Front doors pain to open

    The front doors on my car are becoming a pain to open

    You have to push the door slightly into the car before the door will open when you pul the handle

    Has anyone ever come across this issue?, and is there an easy fix?

    Pretty common fault. The linkage may require resetting but you could try spraying up through the latch and down through the handle with a silicon spray as sometimes it is the little pawl that gets stuck.

    I've had the same issue for years now (worst in winter) and I've been meaning to get around to fixing it but never have done. There used to be a lot of threads about it and from what I read if you remove the door card and look at the linkage you will find that the adjustment on one of them is held by a nylon lock nut which does't hold very well. Sufferers from this problem have unscrewed the nylon nut and replaced it with a steel one and found that to be a permanent cure.
