Question about 2005 Volkswagen Passat

I just bought a 2005 passat wagon. It is great

I just bought a 2005 passat wagon. It is great except I can only open the rear hatch with the key. The remote and the driver door button do not open it. Is there some kind of lock?

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.

2002 Passat help


If you are not having any luck in the local auto salvage yards then have a look at vwvortex. When you type that in click on vwvortexforums in the hint box on your screen or when the page comes up go onto forumsmain. They have several sections depending on make and model. Go from there and there will be a forum for buying and selling based on your car. Hope this helps.

Ford focus wiring


same thing happened to us.  My wife came home and said the rear brake lights were stuck on so I assumed it was the brake switch...not so. Took car for a ride and noticed rear wiper did not work and when I hit the brake the rear hatched opened and door locks blew out.  I started by looking at the wires in the gromet above the hatch and found almost all the wires were bare.  Therefore power was jumping  the bare wires and traveling back down the third break light and to the rear brake lights and visa versa.. a very dangerous situation.  The best that I can tell is the wires are so short in length that they pull and chafe every time you open and close the hatch...very poor design...   Note: we bought our vehicle brand new and some of the wires had electrical tape on them....seems mickey moused.

'99 subaru legacy wagon rear hatch won't unlock


before you pull stuff, go to the back of the car. Instead of pulling the latch (away from the car and towards you) to open the hatch, push the lever in the other direction (towards the car, away from you).

i had this happen to me and read about it online, worked totally fine. It's just stuck towards you and not "sitting" correctly. Hope it works!

Hyundai tucson 2007 rear door wont open, alarm switch, power switch and key will open all doors except rear.


Sounds like the acutator that pushes and pulls. either lost power or died. I would assumed died. U need to check to see if it is on a seperate fuse first, it may be. If the fuse is ok, remove the hatch inside plastic panel and arm and disarm the alarm. See if the actuator moves.

Rear hatch is stuck


you need to remove the panel form the hatch and spray it with white lithium greae, it is more than likely stuck to dryness.
