SOURCE: vw golf bonnet release

On mine, a RHD, it is a plastic lever just forward of the door post. It is a crappy piece of plastic about four inches long.Mine has recently broken and will result in a bill for about £60-70 for replacing the lever and the cable (the cable is very tight)
Getting the handle off was a hell of a job until someone spotted that inside the handle, on the lower part as accessed from the outside, is a clip that needs to be pulled out to release the handle. Only then could we reach the cable and that took an enourmopus amount of effirt to release the bonnet.
As the mechanic said, "I didn't expect this sort of rubbish from VW"

SOURCE: the battery in my VW key fob is dead, now I cant start the engine

No. VW has made it nearly impossible to solve any key-related problems without a costly visit to the dealership. Battery must be replaced, and I assure you. the dealership will advise you that the ONLY place that you can find that particular battery is from the dealership. They like it that way.

SOURCE: Vw Golf 98 clicking sound from engine when starting

If it just clicks when you are trying to start, the battery is low, near dead and needs recharge or replace.
If it starts and strange clicking continues, it is a sign of hydraulic valve lifters not functioning properly --which can be caused by low oil pressure (because of low oil level or bad oil pump). If the battery is good and drains dead after a while --something is connected that should not be. Even your dome light can do that --or the headlights on --or the parking lights on. Check the oil level, if low, add oil and check again.

SOURCE: VW Bora: Can't open bonnet

first of all not an easy job,you need to get the front grill off and look upwards for a cover that will be covering up the bonnet catch,basicly bend or pull this off,you should then see were the cable goes in,then you should be able to bar the catch with a screwdriver to release it. best of luck

I think you have low charge battery which is nearly empty.. why not try to fix another battery from a friend just to try to see for yourself anyway we only need to loosen two screws..

Vw golf mk4 my rear passenger door willnot open with central locking key system. i can't even open it from the inside, pull the door handle and the lock pin rises but door won't open. i believ


This worked for me on 2008 Mk5 Golf, after the rear passenger door would not open fro outside or inside.

Hold the inside door latch open and keep it extended, then with the key fob open and close the door locks (still holding the inside latch open). Keep locking and unlocking the door, then it made a kluck and it released.

Bonnet locked


If indeed the bonnet cannot be opened from inside the car, then you are going to have to climb under or figure out how to get to the latch under the bonnet and open it. Hard pain in the rear but its the only way

Cant open bonnet on a vw golf as the standard mechanism has broken need an alternative method to open it


inside the car cut the covering back on the release cable to expose the wire release cable, with a pair of locking pliers (Vise Grips) pull that inner wire while someone pushes down over the hood latch area, that is what we try 1st in the shop, most times that does it.

I have a 55 plate VW Golf 2.0 Fsi - the alarm keeps going off by itself! We disconnected the battery last night (to get some sleep!) and it's started again today.... agh, HELP!


You probably have a faulty door,boot or bonnet lock.If you put the inside light switch to the setting for the light to come on when the doors are open,close all the doors and see if the light goes off.If your model golf has a display on the dash,it shuold tell you which door is open.It could also be a faulty interior sensor or a faulty alarm horn.A diagnostic machine will be able to tell you which was the last alarm activation.
