Has anyone else experienced sticking door handles?

My last Kuga started just as I replaced with my current ( that was at 8000 miles).

I'm going to phone the dealers in the morning as it is the front doors that are doing it and I can see that being an issue if a passenger forgets!

Just wondered if anyone else had experienced it and how it was solved.

Yes same here - had it and was sorted with magic spray .....for some reason it was only the offside door handles on mine that were affected.

There's another thread on this but yes, it should clear up. Mine did it on three out of the four when I bought it in Feb, but has been fine for months now - I think it's been a combination of warmer weather plus the things are actually getting used, which I suspect wasn't the case with the first (company) owner

See it this way.

During summertime, we can be happy our car is actually getting bigger since the plastic used are expanding.

Sadly during winter this is the other way around, our car is getting smaller and things like handles stick as the plastic is now a little smaller than during summer time ;(

WD40 has done the trick and it no longer sticks! Thanks for your help :)

I had this problem recently with my Kuga when the weather was cold (below ~3 Celsius). All doors had this issue except one passenger door.

I went  back to the dealer and after they took a look at on the handler they told me that was a known issue and they are going to fix it just need to order the missing parts .

They already had a solution how to fix the problem based on a step by step documentation that came from the “global service” that stated there is a missing

little rubber thing that was not installed into the car (basically they just leave out from some model).

It’s working fine now for me.
