Drivers' Door Latch Mechanism

Recently started having troubles with the Drivers' Door on BB. Every time it is closed it doesn't close completely but hangs up/ just catches on the first stage/ hangs out 1/2 an inch. If I open the door again and roll down the window I can get it to close properly 1/2 the time.

If I spray the latch mechanism with a thin lubricant/ PB Blaster or the like it works for a a day and then starts acting up again.

The door hinges seem to be fine, the door doesn't droop or have to step up when closing?

Anyone have experience with this one?

Greg, had a similar problem with the son's Crown vic. I used lithium grease in the spray can. With the plastic 'drink stirer' extension I was able to get inside the latch mechanism. Been fine ever since. If that dosen't work, the latch assembly might be worn out.
