One thing... If your last 3 doors works fine it's mean that problem is only in your drivers side. In VW like nickalxjoe wrote is air pump. So there might be an air leaking which you can hear. So if you can hear from where air running out try to fix this first.

you may have a broken inside handle, open the door, remove screws holding door panel on,then pry door panel off, it has plastic retainers that hold panel on they pry off and pop back when installing panel, once the panel is off you will see if the rod just came off or if handle broke if its the handle replace it remove screww holding it and install new one, some are held with revits, drill revit to remove,use screws to reinstall. hope this helps.

I have this problem every year with my car, 1993 buick regal custom, 3.8. What happens is it gets cold, warms up a bit, and ice or snow melts and gets in the door, then it gets cold again and it freezes. I go to unlock and open the door from the outside and this problem arises.
There is a vertical rod on the left side of the drivers side, right side of the passenger side, that gets bent, from trying to open the door when that mechanism is frozen up. Just bend it back, a TINY bit and it will start working.
I got tired of taking my door apart every time it happened so i cut a little "door" in the cover thing, so i can get at that bar.
I also tried coating it in grease and that seems to lessen the frequency.

Linkage has become detached. You'll have to pull the door panel. There are steel rods (linkage) that are held in place by a PLASTIC CLIPs (GM's better idea)... The clips break or come loose. Replacements are available at GM dealership but you'll need to figure out which one is bad. Take the old piece (or pieces) along with you so you can make sure you are getting the right ones. The interior handle and the exterior handle are on two seperate mechanisms which is why the inside doesn;t work yet the outside does. Hope this helps. Good Luck. If you need help figuring out How-To remove the door panle, a trip to your local public library in the Automotive books section should help and show you how the panel pulls off. A panel removal tool is a big help and is available at most Auto Stores. You make end up breaking someof the plastic clips that hold the panel in place but they are available at an Auto Store also.
