Sticky door handles / Wing mirror seal

Does anyone else have a problem with their door handles sticking? For example you open a door and the handle stays in place and you have to nudge it back into its recess?

Also I have noticed that one of my wing mirrors doesn't completely fold out sometimes. I've narrowed it down to the rubber seal beneath it which compresses causing the mirror to stop it's movement. Just me?

Yes to the door handles. Seems to be most common on the front passenger door and affects the operation inside as well as outside. Planning to raise when I take the car in to have a small warranty repair done on some interior trim

Yes to the door handles and I’ve had trouble getting out a few times where the handle moves but feels like the door locks as you open

Rear passenger door handle doesn't always go back in place.
Been told this morning that my tailgate is now fixed. Apparently the catch needed some adjustment.

Let us know how it tests and if you mention the door handles, what do they say
Will do, they've promised me £250 in accessories to make up for the hassle. Asking for folding boot box, bumper protection mat and a pair of 4 rings door LED's.

Took my 40TDI Avant in for service today and mentioned the non-returning door handles thinking that they’ll just spray some WD40 in them but no...

Apparently, there were errors for the door/central locking sensors on the handles which needed clearing. They cleared them and did a software update and said that should fix it!

Not sure I really buy it - will keep an eye on them.

That’s like saying update windows to solve a sticky shift key

My front passenger door began to stick over the weekend.
