Unless you are mechanically inclinde don't mess with it get someoen you love and adore to do it for you, you can break the tabs that hold the door on and it can get expensive the worst part is it might not open at all if you don't understand how to operate it unless you have one of the experts here helping you with it step by step, but could take as much as 4 hours depending on your ability to work with your hands. Some people just don't need to own wrenchs they are a danger to themselves and the public at large, not saying they are not smart but just don't have the know how and motor skills. I am telling you this so you won't have a headache on your hands.

Is there any way to open driver door that is locked?


Other than getting a locksmith, you may have to remove the door panel and take the lock out from the inside. Then replace it or remove the broken key.
Hope this helps.

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.

ELECTRIC DOOR LOCKS ONLY LOCK SOME TIMES


if you hit the lock button a couple times, will it finally lock?

If so, then you will need to take door cover off and lube up the connectors as they probably got corroded.

Passenger front door of Lexus 300 can't be opened from outside


If you can get it to open from inside then you can proceed to remove the door panel. Be carefull to verify where the hidden screws and clips are at. You will find that the clip fron the handle to the latch has come off or the pewter metal arm on the handle has broken off which means you will have no choice but to replace the handle itself. Not hard, just a bit tense finding the items to release the panel. Let me know if you need further assistance.
