Default 2005 bonneville front doors

My front doors are very difficult to open and close. Applied WD40 to the hinge and seemed to get worse. Any ideas?

Is there any squeeking or rubbing sounds? When the doors are closed is the fit uniform with the roof and rear door? The body panel gaps should be same from front to back on the top and top to bottom with respect to the rear door.

The door fit is fine. The problem appears to be in the hinge area.

You may want to try some real lubricant - some type of oil. WD40 does not not lubricate.
