Question about Volkswagen Passat

1 Answer

I have a 2000 VW Passat and last week I had to remove the driver's side door panel and replace the side mirror controller (this is the controller that moves and defrosts the mirrors). Thus far I had no troubles, the panel came off without any trouble, the controller unplugged and plugged in with ease. Before I put the door panel back on I checked the mirrors to make sure they both moved. After everything checked out, I put my door panel back on, only to find out that the door handle opener wouldn't work, it felt like it had no tension on it. I have to roll my window down and open the door from the outside. I've taken the door panel back off and couldn't find anything that would cause the door handle opener not to work. Does anyone know what would cause this? If so please send my detailed instructions(after all I am a woman and we all know we need instructions for everything..lol) Any help on this will be greatly appreciated!!! Thanks in advance and God bless.

VW 2000 Beetle 1.8 Turbo driver door lower hinge replacement, also replace the mirror switch as it broke off. And non stop door open chiming when door is closed.


The hinge is a big deal. You will have to remove the door panel and the fender. It is a pretty hefty job. While you have the door panel off you can replace the door latch for the door chime and also the mirror switch. Luckily it is all in the same door. Hope this helps.

On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you can remove the bolts securing the mirror to the door.

VW Passat sport 2000. Wipers have stopped is it a fuse and where would i find it please.Washer is ok


Posted as a 2000 VW Beetle, but the fuse panel should be located on the side of the dash just inside the driver's door. There should also be a fiuse diagram on the fuse door panel, as well as in the back of the Owner's Manual.

Right side mirror housing is broken,need to replace.


On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Then you can access the bolts that secure the mirror onto the door
