Question about 2005 Volkswagen New Beetle Convertible
The driver side door only locks from the remote when it wants to. I have to lock it manually with the key. The passenger door locks and unlocks just fine. any clue as to how much this might cost to fix? or what the problem could be? The alarm arms though when i hit the lock button, it just does not lock the driver door.
Inside the door there is an actuator and the rod has become disconnected from actuator to lock mechanism and randomly hits, you have to pull interior door panel and look by door lock inside and look for loose rod and reconnect
