[DML] Re: Driver door latch issue



I had very similar problems with my passenger side when the outside 
handle was used to open the door.  

The rear latch would lock but the front was left slightly out of 
position.  Lithium grease in the cable sleeves (or whatever they are 
called) and on everything else that moves was all it took. (Thanks to 
John Hervey and Robert Rooney for the proper diagnosis and to Robert 
for actually fixing it.)
