Most likely some kind of repair to the door panel will be needed, they should'nt have fallen out, so it is best to remove the panel, it only takes about 5 minutes, worked on 100's of Mustangs like yours, that was an average time.

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

THis is common Too common. As I posted before.

As I posted in the Passat questions.

The jetta may slightly differ.

Yes. If your window has fallen down and will not roll up.
99% Chance you car is suffering the Infamous VW plastic clip.

The door panel comes off With a T-10 torx or a Hex (Allen) wrench
that will fit and A large Philips Screw Driver..

Remove the Plastic cover on the inside Door handle.
And the Screw or Screw along the Bottom of the door panel.
Then remove the screws that hold the handle the the door.
They are located behind the Plastic plate you removed with a tiny screw driver earlier... Be careful not the mark up the cover whaytprying it up. It is best to pry from underneath. Where marks if made can not be seen

After the screws are out 4 I believe. The Use of a CLip tool ir best.
For getting behind the panel to pop it off. A screw driver will work.

After all the clips are released. Pull the light at the bottom of the panel down and out. Disconnect it ur push it back thought the hole it came from..

Now you need a 10mm socket, or wrench to remove the 12 bolts that hold the metal plate to the Door. Remove all the 10mm bolts, If the widow has not already fallen in the door. It should be released. By removing the Black 2" plugs. THe loosen the bolts that clamp the window the the arms. DO NOT LOOSEN THEM ALL the way, .
Disconect the all the wiring.. THe Door lock cable,can be a pain.
I think it pulls down,.
Next remove the Metal plate. that is the regulator.

Door handle linkage disconnects


You'll have to remove the door panel,yes the whole thing,and look for any broken or missing parts in your door latch/lock linkage.Be careful not to break any wires that power your windows/locks while removing the panel.It may be just a plastic clip that holds the linkage together has fallen off.Check in the bottom of the door well for parts that may have fallen down there. A manual from the library or online is a big help here.
