VW Golf mk 5 rear door handle faulty

Can anyone help please? One of the rear door handles of my mk 5 VW Golf has stopped working properly it will only open the door when sharply pulled. I think it may have something to do with the actual handle (?)
There is a small rubber bung on the side of the door that gives acces to some type of mechanism - could this be something to do with it?

There will be a screw behind the rubber this holds the handle in., if the door has not been used much, greaseing the mechanism may solve this

2003 VW GOLF REAR door wont open


The rear door lock actuator has failed in the door locking unit this is a common problem you can manually unlock the door to replace the latch if you didn't have the deadlocking on if you cant try pressing the locking button twice so when the car is locked the flashing red light is not blinking ie off on the drivers. Doing this usually causes the faulty lock to release the dead locking so you can pull the inside handle to unlock the door.

Vw golf mk4 my rear passenger door willnot open with central locking key system. i can't even open it from the inside, pull the door handle and the lock pin rises but door won't open. i believ


This worked for me on 2008 Mk5 Golf, after the rear passenger door would not open fro outside or inside.

Hold the inside door latch open and keep it extended, then with the key fob open and close the door locks (still holding the inside latch open). Keep locking and unlocking the door, then it made a kluck and it released.

Vw golf mk 4 boot won't open!!!


If you completely remove the trim then you will be able to watch how the mechanism operates. If you then turn the key you will be able to lift the handle at the appropriate point when the mechanism is engaged. Leaving the trim off looks bad but it beats not being able to open the boot! My wife's Golf has this problem and it just seems like a rubbish design. The Golf is very poorly built and we have had loads of niggles with it. Will be glad when we get rid of it.

Doors are messed up


If you can get to a local junk yard or you could try a parts store, and get yourself new/used (but not stretched) door handle cables. What has happened here is the cables in your door have become stretched, to the point where it takes a lot of work to open them. If a shop will do it for a reasonable price I'd go ahead and do it. If not roll up the sleeves and try not to get too frustrated because, this job is easy however it can get to be a little frustrating your first time around.

Vw golf bonnet release


On mine, a RHD, it is a plastic lever just forward of the door post. It is a crappy piece of plastic about four inches long.Mine has recently broken and will result in a bill for about £60-70 for replacing the lever and the cable (the cable is very tight)
Getting the handle off was a hell of a job until someone spotted that inside the handle, on the lower part as accessed from the outside, is a clip that needs to be pulled out to release the handle. Only then could we reach the cable and that took an enourmopus amount of effirt to release the bonnet.
As the mechanic said, "I didn't expect this sort of rubbish from VW"
