Default door issues

Why are my doors so damn hard to open? It's almost like the whole door has to be lifted up when opening them. This only happens when opening with the exterior handles though, the interior open with out a problem..

remove the door panel and check the rod that links the plastic handle to the door lock... im sure that rod is either not correctly fited in the handle or its installed in the oposite position... if it has the original rod

He's right , if you have to lift the door to open it the pins and bushings are gone or over the years the door has been pulled down. Ive got special tools to align doors ,trust me tools youve guys have never seen before. what you want to do is try to lift the door up , takes muscle 2 guys will work or use a floor jack to lift the door closest to the outside.

This is all you can do . But check the pins first check to see if there is play ( wiggle the door up and down )
