Door handles?

I feel as if i need to preface this as the first in a series of dumb questions i have about vintage benz's and repairs. That said:

I have a 77'450 SEL that runs great, but is suffering from age and neglect in several areas. One big issue is that the door operation on all four doors consists of yanking the hell out of em till they open from the outside. My questions are:

1) does anyone have any suggestions on what i can do to correct this problem without having to dismantle the whole door panel first?
2) is this something that i just need to live with on this car?

If this is a question that has already been beaten to death somewhere else on this or any other forum, please provide a link so that I'm not wasting any space here with this topic.

Mine is a 72 and the doors all work great with the exeption of the passenger rear door having a sligh squeak in it when it gets to about the halfway open point.
