To remove the lock cylinder the interior door panel usually has to be removed. there is a clip that holds it in position that you can pull off with a good pair of needle nose pliers. is the lock integrated with the door handle?

Open the trunk with the key, it will disable the alarm. You probably need a new door lock cylinder, which you should look into. They're easy to replace, but take a while to get, as they have to be coded for your key. You can also remove the door lock cylinder by loosening the t20 torx screw near the door handle until the lock cylinder slides out(DO NOT LOOSEN MORE THAN NECESSARY TO GET THE LOCK CYLINDER OUT), then use a flathead screwdriver through the hole to activate the lock.

My passengers door doesn't unlock, so annoying! I don't know what to do, it won't unlock manually (by unlocking all doors) or with a key.


The locking mechanism has come undone from the lock or is jammed. You will have to remove the door panel and figure out if it broke or just came loose.
The mechanism looks something like this except it will have a vacuum actuator. I will past the door panel removal instructions below. Let me know if I can be of any further help.64a6bcb.gif
door panel removal:
  1. Remove the window regulator handle.
  2. Remove the arm rest.
  3. Remove the door lock knob.
  4. Remove the inner door handle cover.
  5. Using a flat screwdriver, gently separate the door trim panel clips from the door.
  6. Lift the panel to remove it and disconnect the speaker or mirror wires as required.
  7. Installation is the reverse of removal. Make sure the sheet of plastic behind the panel is properly sealed against the metal to keep drafts out of the interior.

I have a golf tdi 5 door with remote central locking. i locked the car, and when i tried to open it later the passenger door remained locked and it still wount open do you have any ideas ??


There is a few things to check: First check to see that the wiring connection has not fallen off, check to see that the rod has not fallen off. If needed check power to wiring with voltmeter and check relay with ohmmeter.

You will need to remove all the screws to the door panel, remove lock and window controls, and then pry panel with big flat-head screwdriver directly next to the plastic studs and pry panel off. Don't forget about screw and plate next to mirror. Then you will have access to the inside off door and the components

Golf won't unlock?


Go to a VW dealer and purchase a new lock cylinder. Normally it the little tip at the end of the cylinder has broken off. If you want to keep the old keys you may have to take the parts from the new cylinder and exchange them with the old one. make sure you number the lock pins first and keep them in order, other wise it will not work. I've done it for my VW and I am not a machanic. Joe

Ford Escort 1998 central locking


Are you talking about the key cylinder or the electric lock button? If you are talking about the key,you need to remove the door panel and watch the lock rod move up and down. There is a plastic clip that pops open or breaks from age. If you are talking about the electric lock, will the passenger door lock move when you press the lock button on the drivers door? Does the passenger door make a grunt noise when trying to lock/unlock?
