Im afraid there is no easy way , vw can try and carry out a final controlled diagnoses on the rear door latch, but if this does not work then you will have to remove the door panel and carry behind it and then try and break the latch off to release the door its not an easy job, i hope this helps

2003 VW GOLF REAR door wont open


The rear door lock actuator has failed in the door locking unit this is a common problem you can manually unlock the door to replace the latch if you didn't have the deadlocking on if you cant try pressing the locking button twice so when the car is locked the flashing red light is not blinking ie off on the drivers. Doing this usually causes the faulty lock to release the dead locking so you can pull the inside handle to unlock the door.

99 vw passat doors will not open with remote & only 1 door will unlock sometime. rear door locks don't work most of the time.


I had the same problem on my 1998 passat and the first thing i done is take off the drivers side controls for electric windows etc(first step to door card removal) and upon disconnecting the multisocket and putting it back on just to try before going ahead, everything worked again.My problem was N/S rear and O/S/F doors wont open/unlock and drivers front works with key but does not work central locking or window etc.Just a wipe with WD40 on a artist paintbrush to lube it and it was fine but i could see fine damp in the door(i live in Birmingham, U.K and it was snowing for a one month period) which i suspect was from the un-usual cold weather we had.I had lived in East Sussex prior so from warm to freezing was most likely the cause as the door lock froze and one door even flew open as the catch froze and the locked door appeared closed but just stuck closed, wd40 solved that also.Hope this helps.

Hi have a 2004 passat saloon and the n/s rear door will not open from the inside or from the outside, think it may be dead locked


Remove the drivers side door unit with window switches etc and clean the socket underneath and all should work like new.Removal is the black curved trim in door grip, prise&pop out then switch unit is free.

Peugeot 406 HDI 2001. O/S rear door dead locked.


Deep joy. This can be a royal pain. The only way I have successfully done this is to put a battery charger on the car overnight, locked, and then when the battery is sitting at about 15v unlock it with the remote - when the lazy deadlock is stirred into action. It can take a couple of attempts. It really is incredibly difficult to get to. Otherwise, its most easily a case of breaking the unit...though you could try taking the leads off and applying 18v to the solonoid directly. That was my next move, but never needed to get there. You can however stop the deadlock from locking, by cutting one of the wires, test using a multimeter which one is live when you arm the alarm/deadlock the car. Thats also the one to apply 18v to if you want to.
