2000 TJ half door sticking

My driver side door sticks when closed. I've figured out that if I press in on the door while pulling the handle, the latch will release. Has anyone else had this problem with a half door? and is this a product of the latch? the handle? poor lubrication?

Yes, I'm having the same problem, same door. I'm going to pull the door panel off this weekend and see if I can see any problems.

Can't wait to hear what the problem is. I'm hoping some WD40 in a key location will take care of it, but my luck doesn't work that way.

I really think it's more than just the key. I really think it's something to do with the latch. I'll let you know what I come up with.

Worked a double at the station, didn't get a chance to check out the door. Maybe tomorrow if I'm lucky.

I have the same issue. Mine is actually getting stuck and I have to force the door open. I have looked at it a few times and I think I am going to have to replace the entire door assembly.
