    WD40? Is there any play or looseness in the interior door handles? Maybe the catch not return properly?

    door handles seem fine, it seems to be the catch mech, ive tried wd40, and a couple of thicker lubricants.

    im guessing a new catch would solve it easy'r that attempting to adjust the bugger again.

    how much is a catch?

    The catch on the pillar is adjusted too tight, slacken it off and move it outwards slightly as the door latch isnt able to swing to the 2nd position to catch properly

    I have this problem on passenger side , i bent the frame out slightly and it seemed to do the trick but this sounds a better option. How do you move it out , do you mean further to side of car , will it not just bang back in again over time?
