Cinq Driver's door

My driver's door has become a little stiff / almost sticky on opening lately, any ideas? Is it possible to get wear in the door release cables?

Spray the hinges with wd40 ? and then take the door cards off and spray around the door cable

It opens from the inside ok but is 'sticky' / heavy when i open it from outside.

I need some light and some time to look at it.

Look just inside the door edge at the same height as the handle. There you will spy a screw that seems to be in an odd place. Undo, and the handle will slide back, then out.
