My wife has a 2000 new beetle, and all of the sudden the driver's door is extremely stiff in the open and close motion. There has been no trauma to the body or door (at least nothing visible), and there is no noise like a squeal or scraping sound.

Does anyone have a clue on this? Also, is my next step to dismantle the door to try to find the answer? I'm hoping it is just something I can lubricate and all will be well, but somehow I doubt it.

Any suggestions would are welcome.

Thanks!

I agree lithium grease would surely lubricate the mechanism and would last longer. But make sure the hinges aren't damage.
