You need to remove the blank where the lock barrell would be fitted if it was drivers side.to do this remove the black plastic bung that is located on the edge of the door ,then pull the handle as if you were opening the door and hold it in that position,then insert a 20 torx screwdriver in the exposed hole from pulling the bung out and unscrew untill you start to feel resistance ,the screw will not come out you are just slackening it.then you will be able to release handle and pull out blank or barrell if you have one fitted.then flick the cable out the handle ,you can then pull handle towards the back edge of the door and un hook it from door.holding the handle while you are unscrewing the screw is important if you dont the retainer can fall of and end up in the door........not good....

Vw golf mk4 my rear passenger door willnot open with central locking key system. i can't even open it from the inside, pull the door handle and the lock pin rises but door won't open. i believ


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.

Can you tell me how to take the inside door panel offside front on my vw golf p97?


There are a series of 2.5 mm allen head screws around the perimeter of the panel, remove those with an allen wrench. Then pry the cover by the pull handle off(by the window switch) and there are 2 philips head screws. Remove those and the panel will come loose. Disconnect any connectors for the mirror switch and it's off.

Passenger front door does not open from outside, only from inside. Also, driver's side door has to be jiggled a bit to get that door to open from outside. The inside latch is loose. Just bought this car...


this is a common problem with VW door handles, but an easy fix!!! The door handle needs to be replaced as the fork that lifts the lock has broken off or cracked. Depending on the model it is easy to remove the door handle. spring off the Crome mld on the front and on the slam side of the door behind the rubber u will find a phillips screw. Under the crome mld is the other.
Good luck.

How to remove and repalce vw golf wing mirror


On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you can remove the bolts securing the mirror to the door.

You'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. If needed, you can pull back the weather seal (can't reuse it, but it's not that important) and you will be able to access everything inside the door

How to replace inside door handle on passenger on 1998 chevy silv


Remove screw from inside door grab handle. Remove door panel by carefully prying out plastic clips. Drill or chisel off pop rivets holding the handle on. Pull handle out far enough to disconnect linkage and remove handle. Install new handle and secure to metal panel with new pop rivets or sheet metal screws. It may be easier to reconnect linkages by removing the metal panel also.

Passenger side window (VW Golf mark 4-1999)


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.
