Re: doors are messed up
If you can get to a local junk yard or you could try a parts store, and get yourself new/used (but not stretched) door handle cables. What has happened here is the cables in your door have become stretched, to the point where it takes a lot of work to open them. If a shop will do it for a reasonable price I'd go ahead and do it. If not roll up the sleeves and try not to get too frustrated because, this job is easy however it can get to be a little frustrating your first time around.

This worked for me on 2008 Mk5 Golf, after the rear passenger door would not open fro outside or inside.
Hold the inside door latch open and keep it extended, then with the key fob open and close the door locks (still holding the inside latch open). Keep locking and unlocking the door, then it made a kluck and it released.
To remove the external door handle is not nessecery to dismount the door panel. Just follow my instruction: Open the door. Above the latch you will find small round plastic cover 1 inch of diameter.Remove it.There is screw T35 or T40 head/judish star/.Unscrew.Than slide the handle to the right about 1cm.Carefully pul out left side.That is it.
Call me 1-336-835-2180 10am-11pm 7 days a week eastern. Ask for R.C. and I'll be glad to tell you what all it takes. If you look at the other doors that will open you will notice a lever on the side of the latch it will release the latch. with the door open flip the latch and open it so you can see how it works. Also you can take the door panel partly loose. You will not get all the screws out. You can get enough out to pull the door panel out and reach into the door, pull the rod from the door handle and open it. Once the door is open there is a torque bit screw in the end of the door that holds the outside door handle on take it out, pull the door handle out and you will find a pin out or broke in the door handle. Take a handle on the door that works so you can see the difference. To do the back door on a 4 door you have to take out the interior panel that the top holder of the seat belt goes through to get to the screws in the end of the door panel just to get the interior door panel off to reach in. You can replace the rool pin with a screw, but be sure it's tight because it will back itself out and you'll have to do it all again. Been there and done that. Ha Ha. If you need more than this just call. I'm in North Carolina.
Hello, I'll try guiding you through a possible remidy. Is there a round plastic dot or a cover behind the door opener/pull catch you may have to carefully prise it off to reveal a screw. the door handle has hidden screws too? usually one at the top (Possibly hidden again behind blank cover) look under the arm rest of the handle there maybe 1 or 2 hiding. Have you a rod that goes up and down when door is open or closed? if so unscrew/twist the plastic shaft that goes down behind the door card.
The card itself has push in hidden plastic clips all the way around its circumference/outside edge, these are fragile you'll need to prise the card away gently, if you break a few they're easily available eBay for pennies. Hopefully that should get you almost there but be sure to keep looking for mysterious hidden screws on the way through.
Good Luck and A Merry Christmas.
