    I use to be able to unlock the door by pulling the door handle and pressing the cenral locking switch at the same time. Not even this works now. I will definately gi ve your method a try. Thank you.

    R MURPHY THE DOORS OF THE VW AND AUDI SEAT SCODA ARE ELECTRICALLY OPERATED AND HAVE A SAFE FEATURE!!U CAN READ THIS AT THE CARS MANUAL.AT YOUR SITUATION THE MOTOR THAT UNLOCKS THE DOOR IS EITHER BROKEN OR STUCKED!!AT THE 95% OF THE CASES I HAVE SEEN THE MOTORS ARE JUST STUCK!!!GIVE IT SOME SLAPS!!!!!AND ONCE U OPEN IT CHANGE THE LOCK!!!!!!

Hi,
You will need "VAG diagnostic software" - (google it) on a laptop and a £15 VAGCOM interface cable if you want to do it yourself.
Cheers, D.

SOURCE: how to replace tail light on VW golf mk5 estate

Although you posted this question under a 03 VW Golf and you have a MKV. The best I can do is a MKIV set up. From the rear trunk there are access ports just for this job. The right port will be just above the light housing you will find a wire harness for the right assembly. Follow the harness and it will lead you to the assembly. Once located you can squeeze the two tabs and pull the circuit board where the bulbs are installed. Push on the bulb and twist anti-clockwise then pull out of the socket.

The left should be the same procedure and it is located behind your audio components.

NOTE: It's a good idea to wipe your hand and the glass bulb, leaving oily residue will cause early bulb failure once in operation.

What are you calling manifold inlet flap? The part in the pic looks pretty gunked up. Start by cleaning it or replacing it. Have you cleaned the opening on the other side of the flap? It could be hanging up on that. Let me know more about the part your talking about.

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.
