SOURCE: unable to open gas tank

VW lock the gas tank with central locking
possibly the actuator stuck or dead
or the door not unlocked
try locking and unlocking all doors several times
and observe if all doors are responding
If all doors are locking and unlock the gas tank should also unlock
If not most likely the actuator or solenoid is bad
at 2009 this should be a warranty issue so let VW pay for it before you try it.

Hope this helps, it it does please leave feedback Thank You and Good Luck

SOURCE: need to remove outer door handle on an 2009 vw cc.

you need to remove the inner door panel,, you will see a sheet of plastic under that ,, peel it away , look inside the holes on the inner metal door structure,, towards the outside handle,, you will see connecting rods that control the functions, they are held on with little plastic clips,, remove those from the handle side , ( the piece you want to take off, ) there should either be one small bolt head , ( possibly 2 one on each side, the one with just one, has a tab that slides into place on that one) remove that bolt, and the handle will slide off to the outside of the vehicle , make sure to make a note of where each rod goes, and the clips that hold them,

I assume you mean the drivers door. You need to remove the door panel and there are two nuts on the inside holding it on.The door panel has three retaining screws and you need to locate and remove. You then slide the door panel up and then remove it.DON'T pry the panel out you will break it.One screw is on the bottom of the panel. You should see that one. The other ones are under the door switch area and the inside door handle trim.Some have one under the remote mirror trim but not likely.That should give you access to the door handle nuts. Good Luck and I hope this helps you. Thanks Dan

SOURCE: Need to know how to install exterior door handles

I'm assuming that you have the coupe not convertible since I've had same problem with my 97 Dodge Avenger and this is quite common from what I have heard. The handle is held in place by two 10mm bolts. One is easily accessable, located right beside the handle with the door open. The other is a little harder to get at. The first thing you need to do is remove the inside door cover, held in place by four screws and push in clips along the bottom that pull out easily. Two of the screws are visible and in the top corners of the door panel. One screw is located behind the inside handle and once removed the moulding comes off quite easily. The other screw is in the hand hold where you pull the door closed and has a small plastic cover over it. If you have power windows you are able to disconnect the switches once the panel is off. If manual windows, the handles are usually held on by a clip that can be pushed off with a screw driver allowing you to pull of the crank handle. The window needs to be in the closed position so you can access the ONE 10mm bolt holding the outer door handle. Once the interior door panel is off, if any clips remain in the door, take them out and put them where they should be in the door cover it won't go back together properly if you don't. Now you'll need to pull down the corner of the plastic covering the door, don't remove all the plastic just enough to allow access to the bolt. I used a small rachet to get it out. It is in a stupid spot with not much room but is doable. Once out, the handle is only being held by the lock rods to the handle and lock cylinder. The lock cylinder is held by a retaining clip which can be slid off allowing the cylinder to be pushed out. The other rod connected to the handle has a plastic clip on it holding it in place. This can be opened with a small screwdriver. Once opened the rod will come out easily and the handle should come off the door. The only problem reinstalling, that I had, was reconnecting the rod to the handle and found that if you unscrew the door latch, the whole mechanism can be moved down, giving you more freedom to work with the rod. You might want to do this before fighting with the clip holding the rod in place, just a thought as I got mine apart in 20 min. Installing the new handle is quite easy, just attach rod to the handle FIRST before anything else. Once the handle is back on the door the lock cylinder can be pushed back in, it just gets in the way if you put it in the handle right away. Hope this is of some help.

Look at the inside of the door directly behind the door handle. There should be a hole about 15 mm wide.
Just enough to get a small socket through.
Make sure the window is up.

Battery dead on 2010 volkswagen tiguan. keyless entry only. is there a keyhole?


The end of the door handle (the part that doesn't move when you open the door) is actually a plastic cap under which hides the real keyhole. There is even a key-sized hole at the bottom of it which you can feel with your finger. Just pry it off and you're good to go.
