Hi guys I'm new on the forum and only had my 2007 1.8 for a week and absolutely love it :)
But the front door handles are a bit stiff to open, does anyone know how to free them up a bit, I tried some oil on the catch but doesn't help the handle. Any ideas welcome...

I had that issue on both my 8G's and the only thing that helped me was to apply inward pressure to the door handle when squeezing the handle.

My passenger side was very stiff to open

But after I had the handles off to paint the covers ( handles were completely stripped down) I noticed a huge improvement

Mine were very stiff, i just asked Honda about it and they replaced the whole spring etc for free. Now after a year it's still a litte blit stiff, mostly passengers door since it's not being used as much

Oh well lol will just have to leave them, might try to get some sp40 into the handle the weekend but it's ok, the tailgate struts are a bit slow to open as well so might need new ones of them too x thanks

You need to take the door handle out for a proper fix. That's a door card off job.
