The handle assembly is broken if you are getting no resistance. Try with the key inserted and turned all the way, you might be forced to break the door and buy a new door. I would buy door and see how it operates before attempting yours. Go to the junkyard and practice and get a replacement.

Think like a thief... pry it open with some big flathead screwdrivers on each side of the latch

then, you can go from there and see if the handle/latch can be fixed

2005 malibu passengers door in closed position door will not open feels like dod is off how do you open door or remove door panel while door is closed


see if you can't take off a little trim piece around the handle, and try to get the handle out. With luck, the plastic piece at the handle broke, and maybe you can reach in and grab the rod with long nose pliers and tug on it to open the door

Glove box latch broke. How do I get it open?


Gently pry around the cover with a flat tip screwdriver until you can feel where it is jammed. Then work that area until it opens. There is probably a piece of plastic, paper or cloth stuck there.

Glove box wont latch


If the glove box was closed wrong than the latch that keeps the glove box shut will close on itself. If you take a pen or a screwdriver and put little pressure on it and try the handle again it should open. if thats not the case than replace the handle, the locking mechanism with in the handle or the spring broke or came apart.

Glove box door flaps all the way down when I open the glove box.


Look up inside the right or left side of the dash where the glove box closes. There should be a screw that holds stop your talking about. Re attatch it. Unscrew the screw. If broke then use a small nylon strap n secure it to that screw n to the place on the inside of the glove box door.

The glovebox door on my 2001 golf is stuck in the closed position and the handle is broken. How do i open it


From memory there is a row of t20 screws on the inside of the glove box that need to be removed to allow the box out. I think the only way is to break the handle, but as far as I can remember the lock and catch are available to order separately from vw.

Open glove box this morning and it will not close. I do not want to break it by forcing it.


i dont have a picture of this but the latch may be stuck in the closed position. using a small screw driver open the glove box and lift the latch that opens it while still pulling out on the handle take your screw driver and pop open the latch from the inside of the door this should free it up and allow you to close it again. hope this helps
