SOURCE: can't open door
inspect the door hindge pins and busings it sounds like they are getting worn out and maybe due for replacement. also look and see if the spring in the hindge is still their. if all is well have the door adjusted properly to repair your problem.

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.

The winder mechanism is plastic and prone to snapping. get a new lifter assembly. but keep your old winder motor as this is not included. Remove the door trim - screws in handle and pops around edge,(difficult to get door card past door handle take care) - disconnect elect plugs for speakers and door controls . then push out the plastic pin that connects the drive to the glass frame - awkward job - needs patience and care. hope this helps - good luck.
