Question about 2002 Volkswagen Beetle Turbo S
My drivers side door won't open from the inside or outside.
When you try to open it from the inside the lock rod raises up on the first pull but the door won't open on the second (as it normally would.)
I can't remove the lock barrel or the door liner as the door is locked closed.
I am guessing there is something broken in the latch or lock but I can't access the parts to check them.
It is the base model and doesn't have electronic locking - only manual locking using the key.

For us it is a mechanical problem not electrical. We found a quick fix. While pulling the handle outside the car you hit the door really hard with your hip and the door pops open. Inside the car is much harder. While pulling the inside handle you have to **** the door closed. It will take two or three trys. Definately a safety problem and we are looking for a better solution.
