Hi there?
I'm affraid you will have to take the door pannel off and inspect the cable from the handle to the latch. Sometime the end of the handle breaks off and will not pull the cable to open the door....
Good luck....

sounds like the linkage came apart on the inside of the door. Remove the inner door panel & u will see the linkage probably disconnected. find out where its disconnected & reconnect it. there may be a clip which holds it together which u may find in the bottom of the door.

My driver and passanger car doors will not open from the outside they only open on the inside I try opening them on the outside but the handles just wiggle up and down and dont do anything


There is a rod linkage that connects the outside door handle to the latch mechanism. You will have to take the door panel off and inspect the rod.

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.

My 2000 2.0 vw jetta door handle will not open my door from the outside but will from the inside i think the wire that opens it from the inside that connects to the unlactching mechanism is broken


I think the mechanism is broken, if I am not mistaken the exterior handle has plastic retaining clips that often break---a new exterior handle should do it, try to order by vin so it may come painted
