SOURCE: door in back cant open from outside and inside

I'm sure VW had a recall to replace door lock mechanisms around that age, check with your dealer. If the door and window on the same door are not working it could be lack of power to that door, check the wiring harness connection is still plugged in and ok on the b pillar (b pillar is the vertical panel between front and rear door), remove rubber gaitor bellows and check connections.

SOURCE: fix power window on 2002 passat

that sound is the wire that roles up your window it is the window regulator. not a real hard job but might want to go to a shop. if not you will need to pull the door panel off the door latch itself to get to its really not that easy.if interested i can walk you thru it you will need to get a window clip repair kit for the drivers side get that from dealership. you will have to remove the window regulator make sure the window is held up in the track when you pull out the regulator. remove the regulator the you will need a torx 30 bit to remove the motor once you remove that instal the new cable this is where it get fun. get the wires ran to the four points on the regulator. then pull on the clips to lock the cable in there grooves then put back together and lock the window back into the clips thats it any questions just respond will try to help.

SOURCE: 2006 passat door lock problem

One of my rear door locks has the same problem, It just stopped working for no reason. Now the the only way to open the door is from inside, which confirms the child lock is not on.

Please let me know if you have a cure.

Vw passat 2002 one back door wont lock, one wont open, on central locking

Most likely a defective central locking solenoid inside the door. Before stripping down door, look at the rubber trunking between the pillar and the door frame, that carries the wiring into the door. Peel back the rubber and look for broken wires or corrosion on plug.

Where is the button to open the fuel tank on 2013 passat

There isnt a button, you just push the fuel door and it opens. If it doesnt, its may be because your door are locked. When you lock the door it also locks the fuel door.

2002 passat wagon 1.8T Fuel door won't open, how to manually open. running out of gas

the problem is the fuel door release switch in the driver's door or the actuator. I have seen the switch wear out but I've only heard rumors of the actuator dying. There is a contact inside the switch that may be touching or not touch when the switch is pulled. Compare to the trunk release switch. as for manually opening it... it is quite a simple system however no manual cable to pull. If you pry at the carpeting behind rear seats you'll be able to access that area it is possible to manually open it. It's always possible that it is frozen though so maybe try some hot water or pulling it into a garage if you have one.

Fuel filler door my Jaguar X (2002) will not unlock

Most cars have an emergency fuel filler door release somwhere in the trunk. Look for some kind of pull cord close to the area of the outside fill door.
