Door Lock and Handle Problems

Hey guys, just bought my first Prelude, a 97 base. I've got two problems with the door mechanisms that I need some help with.

First, the driver's door handle has a quirky behavior. When I pull the interior handle to open the door, the exterior handle extends like it's being pulled. It does this whether the doors are locked or not, but it doesn't do the vice versa (i.e. the interior handle doesn't extend when the exterior handle is pulled).

Second, there's something wrong with my driver's door lock. I noticed that it was very difficult to unlock it from the outside with the key (it feels like I'm going to break the key), so I took the door panel off and greased up everything I could find. With the door panel off and everything disconnected, it is perfectly easy to unlock with the key from the outside. It is when I plug in the power door lock switch and the power window switch that the resistance increases again, and it becomes difficult to unlock. Could this be my power door lock actuator, or something else?

Thanks in advance for the help!

Re: Door Lock and Handle Problems

Nevermind about my first problem with the door handle. After reading about how to fix "winged" door handles, I discovered that the spring behind the handle wasn't attached properly, so I just drilled a hole and put it back in correctly. Now it works as it should.

I am still curious as to what everyone thinks about the door locking issue though.

Thanks!
