I have a 2001 Audi A6 and the driver side door takes about 10 tries to shut it. Inside if you roll down the window and shut it by pulling gently from the outside of the door it works every time but it's...


Since I have to guess based on your description, I would remove the inside door panel (carefully) and determine if something with the door latch mechanism has come loose or otherwise disconnected. You will likely find something cracked or broken that when the window is down there is less stress on that part, but window up may put too much stress on the part. It would be difficult to diagnose without seeing inside the door.

Ice storm caused the doors to be frozen shut. When I finally got one of the rear doors open, I crawled into the front and kicked open the driver's side and passenger's doors. Now the latches are broken....


ok open the door and look at the latch now while you are looking at it pull the handle as if you were going to open the door the latch should move if it doesnt it is stuck all you have to do is take a screw driver or something and manually move the latch and free it up hope this helps and next time youre doors freeze shut try a warm water in a bucket pour on all edge of door and it should open a lot easier good luck

Door Latch will not engage


It sounds like one of the door handles is not returning alowing the pawl to latch, Lubricate, the latch assembly, making sure you work the inner and outer door handles. Also roll the window all the way down, and look down through the slot to see if you can get some spray lube at the back side of the latch, if so lube again while working the handles. Spray the pivot pionts and sliders on the handles.

Hope this is of some help.

When the door was last Opened the latch must have caught on something and went to the Closed Position. Get a Pair of Pliers and on the Door Where the Latch is Pull it Back Down or Up whichever way that it goes. All makes are Different with This.
