I just fixed mine, thanks to a post here at fixya. Either climb into the back or open the rear hatch window. There are 4 screws in the plastic just below the glass, take these out. Gently pry the plastic open enough to see inside. Using a flashlight try to see the area of the lock. There is an operating rod that rises vertically from the lock just on the driver's side of the lock mechanism. I couldn't get my arm in there to reach it so I used a long stiff wire with a hook on the end. Lift this rod and the door should open. I then took off the liner and soundprooffing to access the lock. The operating rod snaps into a metal clip, mine had come loose. I put it back together and then put a cable tie (zip tie) over it to keep it there. Lube it good while you're there and test it well before putting the plastic back on. Hope this helps.

My Jeep does the same. I found that if you press on the area about 3 inches below the release lever and then try to open it again. That usually works.

Does anyone have driver door layout/diagram to open it up and check on the power window motor and regulator for a 2000 volkswagen cabrio 2.0L fuel injection automatic. Window doesn't go up but you can hear...


there are screws under door handle. the larger one that doesnt move. you need to pop off the cover on it. you can probably figure out the rest. once the door trim is removed, there will be two black rubber plugs near the top of the regulator. pop them out (dont let them fall inside the door) and then push the window up/down button until you see the white or silver clips line up with those two holes. loosen the t-30 torx screws about 2 turns. remove the black inner glass seal. (the one that runs along the top of the door panel) lift the window up and get it all situated where it should be, in the guides, in the fully up position. slide it down slowly and it will go into the two clips. tighten up the t-30 torx screws and reassemble. fixed. for about another year. dont overtighten those screws that are on the clips though, because if you do, the window will break. this is a very very common problem on 99-04 vw's

Drivers door wont open


You need to remove the inner door panel (will have a couple screws in the inner door handle and push pins around the outside. Inside the door are thin metal rods connected by plastic connectors. Check all the connectors, especially at the inner and outer handles. If they both failed at the same time, I would suspect the latch itself.
