Question about 1997 Volkswagen Jetta
Hi experts, I have recently purchased a 1997 Jetta, This is my first time owning a Volkswagen, and so far I am impressed with handling and overall quality of this car. My issue is that when I go to lock the front drivers door manually with the key, when I double turn it, Its suppose to lock all the doors, but this does not happen. I am not sure if this is whats suppose to happen (all four doors locking) but when I do it from the passengers side door, it locks all the four doors and sets the alarm. I am able to re and re door panel on most cars and wondering if first of all, if the drivers side door lock is faulty and if you had service manual or tips on re and re door panel and the lock.
Thanks so much
Our '97 Jetta locking is similar. One back door does not go down with the driver's door key double turn. We push it down manually before locking the rest with the key. I believe electrical lock actuator is gone on that door. Down the repair list. I have had door panels off on the car fixing electric window regulator. There is quite an expensive plastic sheet glued on to inside of door for sound proofing. Real hard not to tear. I bought new one from the dealer. Also little plastic clips around the door panel perimeter were brittle and about 50% broke, but not so expensive.
