Question about 1986 Audi GT

1 Answer

I have an '86 Audi GT Coupe. The passenger door inside and outside handles have become detached. I was able to remove the outside door handle with the door still shut, and I can get into the door but I can't find the trip on the latch to open it. Any suggestions? bill@mckellarsales.com

Passenger door can be opened from inside but not from outside...how too fix???


Remove the door lining and look inside by the lock. There is a linkage that has come adrift. To remove the door lining, remove handles, escutcheons, and arm rests. Using a wide blade screw driver gently pop the plastic rivets that hold the lining to the door.

Inside door handle will not release latch to open door. Must roll down window and unlatch from outside.


undo the door card after removing any parts that may need to be removed in order to release it. Remove the door card paying attention to the rod that should be attached to the internal door handle.. If there is no rod, it has become detached. You will have to check, in this case , why it has become detached. It may be that the end has deformed or that it has snapped, or something it should be attached to is snapped.
The mechanism may be jammed, in which case disassemly, correction, lubrication and reassembly may be necessary.
It should, hopefully, be a straightforward repair

Rear door on 06 jetta wont open


At a guess the outside handle has become detached from the linkage inside the door and you've got the child lock on as well.

Well to get the child lock off, you need a long fairly broad plastic strip, I've used the long side cut out of a plastic milk carton in the past.

Wind the window in the offending door down, then insert the plastic strip in the door gap underneath the handle, once in try the internal door handle, if it fails try again working your way down the door by widths of the plastic strip, trying the internal door handle as you go, with luck you'll have release the child lock by the 3-4th try.

Once open, its taking the inside door card off and re-attaching the linkage for the outside handle.

Door handle outside passenger wont open door . but it does open from the inside.


The outside door handle may be broken or may have become disconnected from the rod that allows the door to open. Sometimes the ther is a plastic clip that connects the rod to the door handle and could be broken any parts store will have replacement clips. Whatever the problem is, the door panel will have to be removed to be able to inspect the condition of the door handle and parts attaching to it.

I cannot open my passenger door from the outside even though it is unlocked. I lift the handle but nothing happens. I can only open the passenger door from the inside.


The outside door handle operation rod has either fallen off or the outside handle is broken, you will need to remove it to find out which one, you will have to remove the interior door panel to access it. Hope this helps, let me know

How to remove rear outer door handle


Though I am not entirely familiar with the audi vehicle, mostly when trying to remove the outside door handle, you need to first remoce, the inside panel where the handel is located. Once this has been done, look to where the door handle comes to the inside of the door from the outside of the car. It should have some sort of a clip/ pin/ screw or other fastening mechanism, which holds it to the car from the inside. Remove that fastening mechanism and the handle should come off.
