Question about 2005 Volkswagen New Beetle
When I press my key remote to lock my 2005 beetle the drivers side door won't lock. Hitting the lock button on the door doesn't work either I have to push the lock down and there's always resistance. The passengers side seems to have no problem and both doors unlock fine. Any advice on what it may be?
All transmissions have to have the oil changed at some point. Not as often as the engine oil gets changed as its a closed system that doesn't get much in the way of impurities introduced like you do with the piston rings leaking combustion gases and carbon into the engine casing but they all have recommended replacement schedules.
As your gearbox oil gets pummeled by the gears in the gearbox the molecules are gradually broken down and over a period of wear it becomes less effective at lubricating your gears so it has a change recommendation but its probably every 40000 miles or so - you need to check the owners manual for the correct change out cycle.

there is a little lever at the back of the headlight just to one side,lift it up and gentle pull the light.this lever is black and can be very tight oil the slides well before you put it back in

On the inside trim, you can 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. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge.
