sounds like the rods are disconnected the clips hold the rods in place the latching mechanism holds the handle in place as well did you replace the speakers or did a shop? if a shop did then they caused this if you did then you may have caused this either way untill you reattach the rods none of it will work. you will have to manually open the door at the latch from inside teh door behind the panel.

SOURCE: Stuck Door Knob with No Access!
I agree with your Hacksaw method. Very easy and very fast. You are going to want to replace the knob anyway so this does not happen again. Just Hacksaw that knob as close to the door as you can without damaging the door. From there you are on your way to access to the parts of the lock. Now you can replace that knob and never have this trouble again!!!! One less headache in Life......Hope this helps you ........Joe

I also had this problem. Support person couldn't tell me if the pump was supposed to run even when setting the control knob to 'off' (bar before (1)). After draining the pan, the control knob functioned normally. So apparently any power to the unit will run the pump when the overflow pan is filled, no matter the position of the knob.

The outside door handles on 95-97 Passats have a known problem. As they age, the pivot pin for the actuaring lever slides out of one of the support posts. This changes the geometry of the lever system so pulling on the handle does not open the door. The locking mechanism will work fine as will the interior door handle. The only cure is to replace the outside door handle.I have to replace my 95 Passat's Left front door handle about every 2 years due to this problem. Do not replace with a used handle as the problem will reoccur sooner. Replacement is easy; Remove the inner panel, carefully peel back the vapor barrior from the door by the outside door handle. Unplug the wire to the door hande and remove the Phillips head screw on the edge of the door that attaches the handle to the door. Slide the door handle toward the front of the door and gently pull it off. Reverse the process to replace it. Ensure the door handle wires are not pinched by the window mechanism and replace the inner door panel.
Remove the inner door panle by removing the door lock knob along with the screws around the front and back edge of the door panel. Remove the plasic cover on the armrest/door pull and carefully remove the wires from the outside mirror adjustment switch. Remove the 2 screws from under the armrest/door pull and pull the top of panel away from the door. Once the top of the panel is about 8 inches from the door it will lift out of the clips on the bottm of the door. Revese process to reinstall. Carefully glue the plastic vapor barrior in place before you replace the door panel.

The instructions they send are almost always generic and cover more than one subject.
If you insert the key and turn it all the way clockwise, you should be able to insert the tool tip they sent you into the hole on the shank part of the handle. Pull straight out and it should come off. Some times it takes several attempts to do.
Next turn key counter clockwise back to starting position and remove key. Dump lock out of handle, paying attention to orientation. Turn lock 180 degrees and reinsert back into handle. Put lock and handle back on to door and reinsert the key. Turn key clockwise and push.... remove key.
Hope this Helps,
P.S. PLEASE RATE MY ASSISTANCE
