Thumbs up

The doors on my 97 M3 are tuff to open either from the inside or outside. Seems like the the hotter it gets the tuffer it is to open. My mechanic said that they were "sprung". Is there a way to fix this without replacing anythig?

have to ask the obvious , have your regulary lubricated them? if not than i suggest doing that first. the heat may causing them to seize up a bit
