2004 passat rear door lock

One of the rear doors won't open from the outside and the child lock is on so I can't open it from the inside. Is there any way I can get the panel off to check the lock mechanism?

    Thanks for the reply....just had a look but couldn't get to the child lock. Looking at the other rear door, the child lock is against the car metal frame when the door is closed :-(

Friend has a dodge avenger 4 dr and has child safety lock enabled but cant open from inside or outside any way to get open ...... thanks


The Child Protection Door Locks (Rear Doors) are located inside the rear edge of the door. Insert the tip of the ignition key or similar flat-bladed object into the lock and rotate approximately one-quarter turn to the LOCK or UNLOCK position (as indicated by the stamped icons). WARNING!
Avoid trapping anyone in a vehicle in a collision.
Remember that the rear doors can only be opened
from the outside when the Child Protection Door
Locks are engaged.

Doors won't open from inside or outside


If you look at the opposite child door lock you will see that the lever/switch is almost exactly lined up with the middle of the armrest on the door. Practice on the door you can open to slide a wide-bladed screwdriver along the edge of the armrest and into the door crack. Avoid the rubber insulation, but once you get the hang of it you will see that it is pretty easy to push the child lock into the correct position for you to open the door. Then, soak all lock mechanisms with light oil like wd-40 and work the mechanisms until they are smooth. Don't get oil on your fabric, use a rag to wipe up excess.

My back doors wont open


If your back doors won't open from the inside then the child proof locks maybe turned on. Open the door from the outside and look at the edge of the door near the lock for a small lever or screw setting for the child proof lock. Tun off the child proof lock and then you can open the back door from the inside.

Why wont the rear door open on my 2009 gmc acadia


from inside or outside ? if won't open from inside your child safety lock is probably tripped. if won't open from outside you probably have a lock rod that popped off inside the door, in which I would have the dealer fix it, it involves taking door pad off and when you can't open door to take pad off ,most of the time it damages it.

1999 Volkswagen Passat inside inner door panel


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

Right rear door wont open


If this car has child safety locks on the rear doors, open the door from the OUTSIDE locate the switch on the door frame and place it in the DOWN position. That should take care of it.

Volvo s40 rear doors wont open inside or outside


There is a child safety switch on the rear latch assembly that prevents opening from the inside handle. This switch may be on. Check your owners manual for more info.
