Question about 2002 Volkswagen Golf

Open Question

How do you replace door handles/locks on 1998 VW Cabriolet?

Hi, I need to replace the front locks on my 1998 Cabrio, I have brought replacement handles with locks and keys but I am unsure as to whether I need to remove the entire door panel or whether I can just replace it by unscrewing the screw on the edge of the door. I found a solution for a Mk 2 Golf but which shows me how to remove the handles (which are black with a chrome strip running along the length of the handle), however mine has not got the chrome bit. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks. PS I have central locking...

Call Volkswagen with your VIN number which is the number on the door sticker using numbers and letters and about 17 digits long. They may also need to program it once it comes in. Let me know if you need anything else.

Hi.
Heat will not help and can damage the door lock mechanism further.
You can try lubing the door lock, but I do not thing it will help. I think there may be something wrong with the mechanism, or you will get the same problem from outside and inside.
If the door is opening from the inside , then the door lock mechanism My still be working. On VW the outer handle is connected to the lock by a steel wire, or by a metal shaft.
To access the door lock you need to remove the internal door panel. The door panel is held by hidden screws located on handles and by a set of clips located behind the panel near to the panel border.
I have service manual for several VW models, I will see if I can find the manual for 1995-1997 Passat and I will eventually send the diagrams to undo the door and access the lock.

98 vw cabrio need to replace window regulator


THis is common Too common. As I posted before.

As I posted in the Passat questions.

The jetta may slightly differ.

Yes. If your window has fallen down and will not roll up.
99% Chance you car is suffering the Infamous VW plastic clip.

The door panel comes off With a T-10 torx or a Hex (Allen) wrench
that will fit and A large Philips Screw Driver..

Remove the Plastic cover on the inside Door handle.
And the Screw or Screw along the Bottom of the door panel.
Then remove the screws that hold the handle the the door.
They are located behind the Plastic plate you removed with a tiny screw driver earlier... Be careful not the mark up the cover whaytprying it up. It is best to pry from underneath. Where marks if made can not be seen

After the screws are out 4 I believe. The Use of a CLip tool ir best.
For getting behind the panel to pop it off. A screw driver will work.

After all the clips are released. Pull the light at the bottom of the panel down and out. Disconnect it ur push it back thought the hole it came from..

Now you need a 10mm socket, or wrench to remove the 12 bolts that hold the metal plate to the Door. Remove all the 10mm bolts, If the widow has not already fallen in the door. It should be released. By removing the Black 2" plugs. THe loosen the bolts that clamp the window the the arms. DO NOT LOOSEN THEM ALL the way, .
Disconect the all the wiring.. THe Door lock cable,can be a pain.
I think it pulls down,.
Next remove the Metal plate. that is the regulator.

Front seats won't lock in place


You just need to replace the locking rod under the seat. You just give it a twist and it will come out from under the seat towards the front. The spring may not be connected either, it may have fallen off.
