Question about 1998 Volkswagen Beetle
You need a special tool that has a hook at the end and is bent in the middle (T 10034). This will easily position a lock spring into door lock mechanism. I'd suggest you buy a set of 1/4" Torx bits so you can work with VW fasteners. They are affordable and available at any auto parts or go to Sears. You attach this bits to a 1/4" socket and a 1/4" ratchet for tight fitting bolts.
Remember, it will be difficult installing a new lock mechanism without the spring tool.
