Passenger door fixed itself!!!

Well nearly!!! It does still take a deft touch to get it to work but....
After nearly 4months of being unable to open my passenger door from the inside... yesterday it decided to open and close every time.
If you pull the interior handle slowly it still doesn't work...but if you basically give it "a quick flick" it works everytime!!!
Does this still point to the bowden cable not sitting correctly or is the cable stretched???
Eventually I will get the door card off and repair fully...but no rush now!!!
