SOURCE: door in back cant open from outside and inside

I'm sure VW had a recall to replace door lock mechanisms around that age, check with your dealer. If the door and window on the same door are not working it could be lack of power to that door, check the wiring harness connection is still plugged in and ok on the b pillar (b pillar is the vertical panel between front and rear door), remove rubber gaitor bellows and check connections.

SOURCE: 1999 Volkswagen Passat inside inner door panel

You'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. If needed, you can pull back the weather seal (can't reuse it, but it's not that important) and you will be able to access everything inside the door

Great I'm glad to hear you got it fixed. I was Leaning towards that solution but you got it figured out. As far as key fobs killing batteries, I do not have a solution to that yet. I have the same problem and have had with all of my Jetta's. If I figure it out I will let you know. Good luck and I hope the best for you.

Drivers door wont open from inside


You will need to remove the inside door panel in order to look inside the door to locate the problem. some of these passats use a cable with metal linkage to control the latch.with the door panel off ,check the cable or linkage to door handle.sometimes the plastic clip breaks and linkage rod will fall off.
Here is a link to a video to help you remove the door panel. hope this is helpful. good day.

97 Passat left front door won't open from outside - will open from inside if lock knob is pulled forcefully. I have new outside handle (not yet installed). All locks open properly with key. I have sought...


Hi.
Heat will not help and can damage the door lock mechanism further.
You can try lubing the door lock, but I do not thing it will help. I think there may be something wrong with the mechanism, or you will get the same problem from outside and inside.
If the door is opening from the inside , then the door lock mechanism My still be working. On VW the outer handle is connected to the lock by a steel wire, or by a metal shaft.
To access the door lock you need to remove the internal door panel. The door panel is held by hidden screws located on handles and by a set of clips located behind the panel near to the panel border.
I have service manual for several VW models, I will see if I can find the manual for 1995-1997 Passat and I will eventually send the diagrams to undo the door and access the lock.
