This started while on vacation: the sliding door handle on the passenger side is sticking in the forward/close position.

We have set the child safety lock on the sliding doors, so the inside handle can only close the door. What I have noticed is that, sometimes, when I try to close the door using the inside handle, it is already in forward position. I have to push it back (which makes the door beep, nice! :-/ ) before I can pull it.

Has anyone had this happen? Does anyone know what exactly needs to be lubed?

I too have this exact issue but only once in a while. Looking forward to some one who's done this fix as I don't want to take it in as they always scratch panels and what not.

I have the same problem. Seems intermittent. When I saw this I was hoping someone here can post a solution.

I don't have the child locks engaged, so I doubt this has any relevance.

My guess is that the cable inside the door that attaches to the latch needs to be lubed.

Starting to feel like I'll be opening the door to explore a little bit... :)

I need to get this done before winter, so I'll post pictures when and if I do.

Same problem here. But it doesnt cause a problem, so I have not complained or had it looked at.

Now the doors only opening half way every once in a while...that has been looked at and nothing found!!!! Sometimes I feel like forcing it open and breaking the door!!!

There are other threads for that, and a TSB I think.

On my van it is the internal handle that I have to push backwards (towards open) before I can pull forward to close the door. From what I can see from pictures and graphics in the tech manual, the pivot of this handle seems to be part of the door mechanism.

Not sure where a cable would come in... :confused:

Also, as noted, we rarely use the outside handle and mostly open the door with the remote and close it with the handle or the remote.

I have the same issue on my '08. Seems to only occur intermittently and on one side of the van. Ideas for a fix would be helpful
