Vw golf mk4 gti

My front passenger window suddenly dropped into the door. i have been told by a scrap merchant and a mechanic that i will need to buy the complete inside door panel which has the window motor, speaker and wiring attached to it. (all of which still work) i have also been told that it is just a wire which holds up the window and it is probably this which has snapped but i still need to buy the door panel which has the wire attached to it and is a nightmare to fit. i would like to know what to get and if i can fit it myself because i have seen a window regulator for sale on the net which has the wire holding up the window and some other things but not the whole door panel. can i just get this and where can i find out how to fit it? thankyou

Vw golf mk4 my rear passenger door willnot open with central locking key system. i can't even open it from the inside, pull the door handle and the lock pin rises but door won't open. i believ

This worked for me on 2008 Mk5 Golf, after the rear passenger door would not open fro outside or inside.

Hold the inside door latch open and keep it extended, then with the key fob open and close the door locks (still holding the inside latch open). Keep locking and unlocking the door, then it made a kluck and it released.

I own a second hand 1999 VW Golf MK4 19 TDI and I have been experiencing trouble with the central lock for ages ! At the beginning the passenger side door when I pressed the lock button on the FOB key did...

Dear sir, I am glad to share the experience. I had the same problem. At first I also thought it was the key that was faulty, I Went and bought new batteries, but it never worked. When a specialist checked, we found that the ignition system is the one that was faulty. When we replaced it (USD500.0), the problem was resolved.
The only complication is that when you change the ignition system, the key and the steering lock which is always a set has to be replaced, the key need to be programmed with the computer in the car so that it works. So I wish you the best. Julius ouma, Kampala, Uganda. [email protected]

Not positive if it works on VW's but try locking/ unlocking the passenger door with the key. There are sensors in both doors.

Mk 4 vw golf gti front door lock problems

Those components are probably part of a new lock assembly. Maybe locate a used lock to take those pieces from.

Serious electrical problems wiv vw golf mk4 gti turbo yr 2000

I had a VW rabbit that developed mad electrical problems. It started when one day the headlights remained on and would not shut off. It turned out that a $2.00 gasket for the antenna wire had failed. This allowed road water from the wheel well to leak onto the fuse box. In time the fuse panel corroded and shorted out. I had to replace the fuse box twice and use rubber epoxy to seal the leak.
Check all fuses and electrical wiring for signs of shorts or corrosion.

I have a vw golf mk 4, 1999, 2.0 GTI, 5door. whenever it rains the back footwells get soaked i have got a sunroof but i am sure waters not coming in from there i think it could be the door seals. could...

I understand there are 4 run off points for the water two at the front and 2 at the back.

on my golf i had a problem that the front one was blocked (off side ) if you open the door and look where the hinges are there is a black rubber nipple this was blocked.

I understand the back ones are underneath somewhere - if you do a sear on golf mk4 interior leak you should get the answer to your problem - I hope this information is useful.
