Question about 2003 Audi TT

Latch on hatchback locked in the closed position

The latch on my Audi TT (2001) hatchback locked in the closed position. Thus when I pull the hatchback down, it just bounces off the closed/locked latch and I cannot secure it closed. It potentially flies open on the road since it is not locked. Is this electrical? Can I simply unlatch it with a screwdriver? It does not release when I apply the unlock button inside the car or from the remote key.

2005 quattro , battery is dead and hood wont release.Is it an elecrtonic release?


Heidi, No electric release. The latch is probably stuck. While you pull the interior hood release have an assistant push down and pull up repeatably/vigorously until hood releases from stuck position. Lube latch and cable before closing hood. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Driver door doesn,t close


If you look at the latch mechanism on the door you will see a slotted piece that will line up with the latch receiver on the door post. When the door is open, this slot should be turned so that it can grab the receiver when you close the door. Try moving it into the proper position while manually pulling the door open handle.

The rear hatch latchis open but the latch is in the closed position. Thus it will not close.


try using the handle while prying up on the locking clip, the pin should pop up allowing you to close the lid

2001 AUdi S4 Trunk will not open. Can't open manually or wiht remote. WIll do it speratically. Can not open manually wiht button at trunk or with key. HELP.


The same "latch" secures the trunk closed.
The key, electric relay and button operate the same latch.
IF the trunk fails to open, the "latch" is not completely releasing from the catch that secures it.
The next time that you open it, inspect the adjustment of the latch assembly. It has 2 bolts that secure it. You can loosen them and adjust the assembly to a slight more open position - so that each time you operate the latch, it releases from the catch.

Don't move the assembly too far - or the trunk will not be able to lock closed at all.

The locking mechanism on the rear passenger door isnt working.The door will close but the metal catch will not lock.How do i repair?


I have seen some times the latch assemblys get rusty or dirty and the inside or outside door handles are pulled and the latch assembly siezes in the open position not allowing the door to latch closed..but this may not be the case .. check to see also if the child lock switch position is not stuck in the halfway position, also check if the latch has not flipped to the close position before the door was closed thus jamming the striker latch..this can be fixed by pulling the catch out while opening the door handle..hope this helps good luck...
