Driver door very hard to open

I have to pull very hard to get drivers door to open. I can lock and unlock with the key or keyfob, so I am thinking it is not the actuator. Is that what the actuator does? I am trying to avoid replacing the door lock assembly (part # 69040-0C010) which is about $250. I have lubed up what I can with WD40 and lithium grease. If I remove the assembly, could I possibly repair it?

Does anyone have any experience with this or any suggestions?

Thanks.

Re: Driver door very hard to open

Here is the manual for the door and body section, my guess is that there is a cable the runs through the door and that cable could be stretched and lost it's tension, if not that then the hinges are my only other guess.

Thanks. The cable appears to work ok, but I will apply some extra tension and see if that helps.
