    Maybe the grease has worn away, just grease the hinge up again see if its any better.

    I have this but find its because you dont pull the handle up you have to pull it out.

    Most people try to pull it up because a few other cars are like that.

    Exactly this, I have the same issue and it's people pulling the handle up and out rather than just outwards. They soon get it though
