My golf mk4 tdi boot wont open atall

My golf mk4 2001 tdi boot wont open atall with the key or central locking! the key wont turn atall, and even pushing the key into the lock is hard! at first i thought the cold weather had simply just frozen it but now its apparent that its just not opening. when i lift the handle there is no clicking sensation as there would be if it was unlocked and about to open.

I take it this a normal key not a electronic one, normal key has teeth,get some powered graphite from the parts store,hold open the little key entry door on lock,spray in graphite(plenty),move key in and out of lock until smooth,more graphite,put key in lock, gently turn key side to side,more graphite,work the lock,everything should loosen up, never use liquid lubricants on locks

Get hold of a can of Plus Gas or even WD40

Open the slot where the key goes into with a thin screw driver push the thin tube on the can then into the hole

Cover with a piece of tissue , give it a god blast and leave it for a few hours

Do it again and this time gently rock the key as if you are trying to opem the boot

It should free off

As they say if you dont use it you lose it !

Vw golf mk4 my rear passenger door willnot open with central locking key system. i can't even open it from the inside, pull the door handle and the lock pin rises but door won't open. i believ


This worked for me on 2008 Mk5 Golf, after the rear passenger door would not open fro outside or inside.

Hold the inside door latch open and keep it extended, then with the key fob open and close the door locks (still holding the inside latch open). Keep locking and unlocking the door, then it made a kluck and it released.
