Hey gang,

In the last week I've had problem come up with easily opening my drivers
door.  From both the inside and outside handles, it's very difficult to open
the door, and the door latch doesn't actually release until the last
probably 5% of the handle throw.  At that point, it's very tight and almost
feels as if something may get broken when I open the door.

If this just a matter of getting in the door and lubing up the cables and
other mechanisms?  Just curious before I pull off the door panel...again.

You can lube the latch mechanism without removing the door panel. There is a 
hole near the latch though which you can spray some lube onto the latch. 
Made a huge difference on mine.  The shop in Missoula showed me how to do
