Question about Volkswagen Golf
My 1997 VW Golf driver's side door will not latch closed. The lock will still engage if held shut, but is able to be pushed right open with little force.
It sounds like one of the door handles is not returning alowing the pawl to latch, Lubricate, the latch assembly, making sure you work the inner and outer door handles. Also roll the window all the way down, and look down through the slot to see if you can get some spray lube at the back side of the latch, if so lube again while working the handles. Spray the pivot pionts and sliders on the handles.
Hope this is of some help.
