Question about 2003 Volkswagen Passat

05 VW Passat - work-around rear hatch always being locked?

To me the most annoying feature on my 05 Passat is that the rear hatch door is locked when all of the passenger doors are unlocked. You have to either unlock it with your key, your keyless remote, or walk around to the driver's side door and hit the special unlock button - not the unlock button that works the passenger door locks, buy yet another one.
Does anybody know of a work-around for this so the hatch can be opened when the car is unlocked??

My remote central locking system has failed (not battery in fob) and I cannot access my fuel tank. Can I manually release the tank cover without removing all the rear panelling? VW Passat Estate 05 plate.


vw doesnt have an emergency release handle that i know of,you will have to remove the panel and then twist the cable end where the head of the gas door lock is, as you twist it will pop out, unless its electric release then do the same except there no cable just the lock head and a connector. the release seloniod may be bad or stuck, or the door may be stuck.hope this helps,

I just bought a 2005 passat wagon. It is great


you must remove the inner lower panel on the hatch and lubricate the lock mechanism and solenoid.

Watch out for the hidden screws in the lift handle cutouts.

Get 6 new panel clips from a VW dealer before you start.

Door in back cant open from outside and inside


I'm sure VW had a recall to replace door lock mechanisms around that age, check with your dealer. If the door and window on the same door are not working it could be lack of power to that door, check the wiring harness connection is still plugged in and ok on the b pillar (b pillar is the vertical panel between front and rear door), remove rubber gaitor bellows and check connections.
