SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: 02 plate vw golf door

It is a common problem
http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=1542461&page=1
Usually it is a result of breakage of the soldered joints to the
module in the door. I guess that the part of the module with
the pins are fixed to the door, but the board that they are
soldered to is not fixed. So as one shuts the door, over time,
the pins poke further through the board and break the (rather
weak) soldering that holds them to the board. Then the board
is loose, and an intermittent fault prevails. There are six solder
joints that are prone to this failiure. Particularly two of the pins
have a tendency to poke too far and break their soldered
connections. The symptoms (never locking, appearing locked
even when not locked, being unable to unlock etc) may depend
upon which of the joints have broken.
Sometimes it can be one of the four (?) microswitches that fails.
This will usually (but there are hacks) *require* you to replace
the module.

But particularly when the fault is intermittent, it seems fair to
suspect a break in the soldering which, if you can get the door
open, can be fixed with a soldering Iron.

Thus....

You can buy a whole new module (at about 100-150USD) plus
installation (perhaps another 100 USD). Or you can open up
the door (see link above) and try re-soldering the joints yourself.
Several people have said that re-soldering works for them.

We are going to ask our garage to open up the door and try
and do the soldering ourselves before askign them to order a
new module.

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.

Fuel door won't open on a 2008 g8 pontiac


Fuel Fill Door Description and Operation
The fuel door latch actuator shares the circuit with the driver door latch assembly. The body control module (BCM), upon receipt of a lock switch lock or unlock signal, will switch the appropriate door lock actuator, as well as a fuel filler door release actuator control circuits to battery positive voltage. The opposing side of the door lock and fuel filler door release actuators is connected to ground by the I/P fuse block through the other door lock actuator control circuit and the doors, along with the fuel filler door release, will lock or unlock as commanded.
Circuit/System Testing
  1. Ignition OFF, disconnect the harness connector at the fuel door release actuator.
  2. Test for less than 1 ohm between the control circuit terminal 1 and ground.
  3. ?‡'
    If greater than the specified range, test the control circuit for a short to voltage or an open/high resistance.

  4. Test for less than 1 ohm between the control circuit terminal 2 and ground.
  5. ?‡'
    If greater than the specified range, test the control circuit for a short to voltage or an open/high resistance.

  6. Connect a test lamp between the control circuit terminal 1 and control circuit terminal 2.
  7. Ignition ON, command the doors to LOCK and UNLOCK by using the door lock switch. The test lamp should illuminate while commanding the LOCK and UNLOCK states.
  8. ?‡'
    If the test lamp remains OFF during either command, test either control circuit for a short to ground.

  9. If all circuits test normal, test or replace the fuel door release actuator.
Component Testing
  1. Ignition OFF, disconnect the harness connector at the fuel door release actuator
  2. Install a 15A fused jumper wire between the control terminal 1 and 12V. Momentarily install a jumper wire between the control terminal 2 and ground. The fuel door release actuator should perform the LOCK/UNLOCK function.
  3. ?‡'
    If the function does not perform as specified, replace the fuel door release actuator.

  4. Reverse the jumper wires. The fuel door release actuator should perform the UNLOCK/LOCK function.
?‡'
If the function does not perform as specified, replace the fuel door release actuator.

You can open it manually by removing the boot side panel and pulling on the actuator . But the fuel flap actuator is a common fault and change the cable at the same time . Quite a cheap job to do Regards VW Audi Tech
