SOURCE: Door not closing, mechanism not ingaging

I had the same problem of the door not closing because of that little mechanism locked down. I kept wiggling and poking the little mechanism and it finally let up after i just pulled open on the inside door handle. hope this helps.

SOURCE: VW Polo 2001 - Electric Windows wont open from Drivers side..

I removed all 3 switches from driver and passenger door, which is really easy with a flat head screw driver. took them completely apart, very carefully, with a small screwdriver out of a christmas cracker. put them back together again and 2 switches started working, so I put 1 in the drivers side and 1 in the passengers side so now my drivers door window opens and I lean over to open the passenger door. cool, no money spent...yet ;o)

SOURCE: how to change drivers door latch on vw golf sdi

Have you tried using WD-40 to help the lock from sticking you may not need replace it.
However if you feel it's necessary ...you need to remove the inside door panel with the window up remove the two bars that are you inner lock and door handle levers a plastic clip holds them into place on the lock itself .a drop light is very helpful once the levers are disconnected remove the outer screws on the door itself the lock should fall off from the inside at this point ...install new lock and reinstall rods { levers} to the lock itself test before reinstalling door panel then secure when confident it works properly

Take off the door panel and check to see if the linkakge from the outer handle to the latch has become disconnected and for the closing problem lube the latch well more than likely its not opening fully when you pull the door open so when you go to close it it pushes the latch closed before the actual bar its suppose to latch to enters the latch

Have a 1999 ford explorer xlt got out of truck and the passenger door won't close tried locking and unlocking door to no avail. So now my passenger door won't close. What is wrong


It is possible the latch mechanism closed after opening the door. Get a flat blade screwdriver and stand outside your truck, looking at the door latch area. you should see a small flat arm that is making a closed loop in the area where the door striker goes. Stick the screwdriver inside the loop and gently pry outward on the loop as you pull the door handle. That loop is actually like a tongue that should flip inwards towards the truck as you pull the handle. There are a few different ways you could possibly flip the latch back, depending on the exact configuration of the latch assembly. Usually on my wife's van we have to put the screwdriver through the loop from the outside and rest the tip on the door. Then, as we pull the handle, we move the handle of the screwdriver toward the vehicle which flips the latch back down so the door striker post can go inside the latch. I hope this helps and please rate my solution - I'll wait a little while to see if it works for you - if not let me know right away and I'll try to help you figure this out. Thanks for using fixya!!!

I have a 1998 windstar gl and my sliding door will not open. nor will it close all the way. wont budge, and is ajar


It sounds like the latch may not have opened all the way last time you opened it and then when you tried to close it, the latch jammed on the pin.

I would get inside the van and try to force the sliding door open at the rear where it swings out on the rails. The latch is going to have to be jarred loose.

If you get it open, check and make sure the "fingers" on the latch are completely opened before closing it again, and give them some lubrication.
