Had that problem; try lubing the door mechanism contact points with some lithium grease.  Unless someone else a better way, the main pain is taking the door panel off to access the machinery.

May let you quote me on this, but don't think resistance in the door handle pull is indicative of lock cylinder arm problems.  The more frequently used side will go first.

Subject: [200q20v] Door Handle Pull 

Dear Listers, 

I am experiencing the following: when pulling up on either front door 
outside door handle, it hits a spot right before the door opens where 
you have to lift with more effort. It almost feels as if the door is 
locked but you are forcing it open by lifting the door handle. 

Has anyone else had this problem ? 

Am I due for the dreaded lock fix ? 

Car is 91 Avant with 76K.
