Question about 2001 Volkswagen Eurovan

1 Answer

Driver door; removal of interior panel (VW Eurovan 2002)

I would like to be able to replace a simple part but it requires taking the interior door panel off.

I would like to be able to replace the part that regulates the swing of the door which is between the two hinges the door swings on and right below the goose neck sleeve that carries the electrical lines from the car to the door. There are two (2) rather large Torx fasteners on either edge of the door...do I have to remove those? It seems like such an easy thing to replace, once I am able to remove the interior panel to put in the replacement piece.

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 doo

How do you remove driver side door panel to replace broken interior door latch?


I just do them. Done to many. So this is generic. Look for plugs around the door handle, arm rest, and by the mirror. Pop them out, screws behind them. Screws can also be around the perimeter of the door panel. Also behind door reflectors. Once out lift up on the panel. If it doesn't go up, use a screw driver, start at the bottom and pop it off.

The interior lights in my 2004 VW jetta do not turn on when the driver door is opened.


If I am remembering correctly, the switch is part of the latch. Each door has its own switch to turn on the interior light, and it sounds like the switch in the driver's door latch is either stuck or junk. If it has to be replaced it is very simple to remove for those that know how, but a nightmare for those that don't. The exterior handle has to be removed to release the pull-cord to the latch, interior trim panel and vapor barrier has to come off. Electrical harness, lock rod, interior handle rod, all have to be removed. Now the latch. Then it all has to go back together, and most importantly, it all has to work. I'm not saying it's not possible. I'm saying that it can ruin your day and your wallet if something goes wrong.

2001 Toyota Camry - Removing driver interior door panel


you can take a screw driver and pry it off. Be careful if you have power windows, if it falls right off then it could pull the wires loose. The panels have clips that clip to the door. Therefore, the only way to get the panel off is to pry it off.

96 vw passat door problems. driver side door wont


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.

How do you remove driver side door panel 1999 vw beetle


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'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls.
