    Just bought a 1999 Golf, Front passenger door just doesn't open, I hear it is just a small plastic clip instead that snapped in the cold weather (Alberta), and I can hear a small rattling inside the door if I go over a bump at speed.


    No Idea on cost, going to get it checked out soon though.

This would not be simple first trick is getting off the door panel with the door closed then you can get it open to replace the latch assembly

Passenger door can be opened from inside but not from outside...how too fix???


Remove the door lining and look inside by the lock. There is a linkage that has come adrift. To remove the door lining, remove handles, escutcheons, and arm rests. Using a wide blade screw driver gently pop the plastic rivets that hold the lining to the door.

Opening the drivers door doesnt automatically open the passangers door


Some vehicle locking systems allow a single button press to unlock the driver's side door and require a second button press to unlock the passenger side door. Likewise, use of the key to unlock the driver's side door does not automatically unlock the passenger side.

97 Mercury Mountaineer driver side door won't open. Outside handle flops around; inside handle won't open door


Try a slim jim first, down the side of the window. Or AAA or locksmith. If no luck, remove the seat first. Find the screws and bolts around the door handle and arm rest. Most Ford's have screws around the outer side of the panel. I don't believe your's does. The panel lifts or pops off. Once the panel is off, you can reach down and open the door. Just a note. I have done some to where the panel came out in pieces.

Passenger front door does not open from outside, only from inside. Also, driver's side door has to be jiggled a bit to get that door to open from outside. The inside latch is loose. Just bought this car...


this is a common problem with VW door handles, but an easy fix!!! The door handle needs to be replaced as the fork that lifts the lock has broken off or cracked. Depending on the model it is easy to remove the door handle. spring off the Crome mld on the front and on the slam side of the door behind the rubber u will find a phillips screw. Under the crome mld is the other.
Good luck.

Front passanger door not opening on central locking


My 1998 passat done the same, try remove the drivers side window/childlock control on the armrest and clean the multipoint switch as that got my drivers side door opening/closing on the fob as well as the passenger rear door unlocking and working again as it was deadbolted and would not open inside or out.

I also am unable to open the front passanger door from the outside, does anyone know if this is a common fault, this is the second passat it has happened on


Yes, it seems VAG haven't got the hang of making a decent door handle / latch system!

If it opens from the inside ok then it will be the linkage from the outer handle to the latch that has come away. Usually they just fall out of the clip and can be pushed back into place but in cold weather the plastics get a little brittle and snap.

Once the inner trim is off, look inside the door shell, it should be fairly obvious when you see it.
