How do I repair rear outside door handle?


It's physically broken. Handle assembly needs to be replaced. My brother complained about having to replace it once a year on his Toyota. He also warned not to buy used replacements because they are always "ready to break." He told me he could see the stress cracks in used handle assemblies.

Lift gate will not open


If you can hear the lock and unlocking of the mechanism in the rear door latch with the key fob and the electric button on the side doors, but the outside handle will not open the rear door, then the handle has broken off from the inside. The plastic handles can now be replaced with stronger metal ones. Several other possibilites, including cables and actuator problems. Sequoia owners have had a lot of problems with this. Good luck, i hope this helps.

I just bought a 2005 passat wagon. It is great


you must remove the inner lower panel on the hatch and lubricate the lock mechanism and solenoid.

Watch out for the hidden screws in the lift handle cutouts.

Get 6 new panel clips from a VW dealer before you start.

Can not get in the trunk. The handle is broken.


Legacy, right? Can you tilt the backseats' backrests forward? like when you want to transport something big in the trunk... I suppose the sedan has this similarly to the station wagon. 
Use a pocket torch to look for the lock body from inside and there should be a small button or better a lever that you have no clue what it is there for, right? try to push it or pull it from ech side untill it opens. 
It is actually there to prevent transporting people in the trunk against their will(unlike the movies, where it is possible).

Feel free to send any feedback

Door handles (exterior)


This won't solve the problem once the latch is broken, but can help keep you from breaking your door latch on cold frosty days.

Shortly after buying my 99 Park Ave I noticed that the rear door handle on the driver's side was black, instead of painted gold to match the rest of the car. I presume that the previous owner had the problem mentioned above. To avoid breaking the flimsy plastic handles when my doors are frozen shut (which is often during the winter in upstate New York!), I use the remote to unlock the doors, then I open the rear door first. By opening the rear door first you can grab the edge of the door at the wheel well, while pulling gently on the latch. By applying most of the force to the edge of the door at the wheel well you can avoid breaking the door latch.

While the rear door is open you can repeat this process to open the front door, grabbing the edge of the door in the crack created by the open rear door, and lifting gently on the front door handle. (Just make sure the rear door isn't closed in the process or you will crush your fingers!) This approach has worked many times during the last two winters that I have had my Park Ave. Hope it helps others!
