If the knobs don't come up enough to remove (unscrew) them when unlocking with a key, you will need to remove the door panels to access them. take out the screw in the arm rest, take off the window crank and gently pop the plastic fasteners around the edges straight out, them pull door panel up and away. this should expose the knobs enough to remove, then replace the door panel and put in the new ones... Hope this helps...;-)

Can't open 2002 VW Polo rear door from inside or outside. Lock button does not go up when car unlocked. Tried hooking mechanism through door handle but still no good.


Hi:
Most likely the power lock/unlock solenoid in the door has seized up or rusted, not allowing the door to open or unlock. If the inside door panel can be removed, with the door closed, you should be able to disconnect/ or replace the door lock solenoid and be back in business.

97 Passat left front door won't open from outside - will open from inside if lock knob is pulled forcefully. I have new outside handle (not yet installed). All locks open properly with key. I have sought...


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.

How do i remove a door panel from a vw polo match 2001. I have the lock/unlock button to reposition back in its slot as it has been pushed into 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
