    Default Front doors won't open back doors will.

    I have a 1995 Buick Regal 3.8, PDL , PW, PS etc. Lately the front
    doors were hard to open from the outside and this morning my wife had
    to get in the rear and climb over. Any ideas ? Thanks

    There is a trim piece that runs along the top edge of the door. It runs
    from the very top back of the door (over the window), along the top and down
    the leading edge. It slides backwards over time. Take a hammer and a piece
    of wood and tap it forward again.

    Take a close look at the door as you try to close it and you will see how it
    is hitting on the B pillar.

    trim piece like you describe,

    Go take a look at the car. If yours if different than my old Regal we'll
    have to think about other things.
