1985 944 Door Handle

So I am currently up at college and a few weeks ago I went out to start up my car and get it running to warm it up. The door handle on the passengers side was frozen shut, and I tried to open it to no avail. I did get the outside lever to move, but it got stuck to the door handle and I had to push it back out. Now I can lock and unlock it from the outside, but can only open it up from the inside. So I have to get in to open it for a passenger. I'm going to a shop on Friday at 1:30 to get some other stuff checked out, and I will ask about it there also, but if I could fix it myself, that would be cheaper. Any suggestions or help would be appreciated

Thanks,

Vlad

Park it in the sun, it may just be frozen

sticky mechanism on the latch can do this.
maybe OLD grease thick due to temperature not wanting to move.

pull door panel off car, unbolt latch mechanism from 'back edge' of door, degrease with WD40, brake-cleaner, etc, add some new grease to pivot points and whatever you can reach on the handle in the door, reassemble and test
