The mechanism is not removable for the outside, for that would defeat the purpose of the lock if any would-be entrant could just do that!

I am including a link to the grid of information for the L1000 lock, where you can find PDF links to the Manual, Parts List, and Tips. Tips has reprogramming and troubleshooting information.

In order to view PDF files, you will need to have Adobe Reader installed on your computer. There is a link to get Adobe Reader on the Literature Grid Page:

I found this instruction elsewhere on the FIXYA site ( thanks to pctuneup191):

PROCEDURES TO CHANGE THE COMBINATION OF SIMPLEX 1000 SERIES CIPHER LOCKS


1.) ENSURE THE DOOR IS OPEN.


2.) INSERT THE DF-59 CONTROL KEY INTO THE COMBINATION CHANGE PLUG ASSEMBLY (ON THE BACK OF THE

DOOR) AND UNSCREW THE CYLINDER BY TURNING THE KEY COUNTERCLOCKWISE.


3.) TAKE THE CHANGE PLUG ASSEMBLY COMPLETELY OUT OF THE DOOR.


4.) TURN THE OUTSIDE DOOR KNOB CLOCKWISE ALL THE WAY UNTIL IT STOPS, THEN RELEASE THE KNOB.


5.) PRESS IN THE EXISTING COMBINATION FIRMLY.


6.) INSERT THE SPANNER WRENCH IN THE COMBINATION CHANGE SLEEVE. IT SHOULD INSERT AT THE NINE

O'CLOCK POSITION.


7.) TURN THE SPANNER WRENCH GENTLY CLOCKWISE UNTIL IT STOPS AT THE 12 O'CLOCK POSITION. NOTE

THE NOTCHES IN THE COMBINATION CHANGE SLEEVE MOVES AS THE SLEEVE IS MOVED.


8.) TURN THE SPANNER WRENCH COUNTERCLOCKWISE BACK TO THE NINE O'CLOCK POSITION UNTIL IT STOPS.

REMOVE THE SPANNER WRENCH.


9.) TURN THE OUTSIDE DOOR KNOB CLOCKWISE (ALL THE WAY, UNTIL IT STOPS), THEN RELEASE.


10.) INSERT THE NEW COMBINATION BY PRESSING IN THE BUTTONS. USE AT LEAST three numbers and a

maximum of five.


11.) TURN THE DOOR KNOB CLOCKWISE ONCE, ALL THE WAY, UNTIL IT STOPS. HOLD IN THIS POSITION AND

CHECK IF THE LATCH IS RETRACTED.


12.) RELEASE THE DOOR KNOB.


13.) TURN THE DOOR KNOB CLOCKWISE ONE MORE TIME TO THE STOP POSITION. AT THIS POINT, THE LATCH

SHOULD NOT RETRACT UNLESS YOU USE THE NEW COMBINATION.


14.) REINSERT THE CYLINDER INTO THE BACK OF THE DOOR BY SCREWING IT IN CLOCKWISE WITH THE DF-59

CONTROL KEY (DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN!)


REMOVE THE KEY.

I just installed a Schlage deadbolt. If I lock it from the outside (using the key) it locks fine, but I can't remove the key without unlocking it. Now What?


Hi Winston:
Is it possible to try this:
- pull the lock from the door while leaving the deadbolt in place
- turn the mechanism 180 degrees.
- re-install and give it a try.
Let me know how you progress.

The lock got flipped on the bedroom door. I am now locked out. The door knob has been removed but I cannot get the mechanism inside the door unlocked. How can I do this?


You are almost there. Take the knob containing the spindle and insert into the latch mechanism. Twist it and the lock button will pop out. Open the door. Put everything back together. NOTE: I just confirmed this using a lock mechanism in front of me as I answered this.

Driver door wont open


You probably either have a piece of linkage that has come loose inside the door or the latch mechanism is stuck halfway between "lock" and "unlock" (fairly common on some vehicles). You will need to remove the driver's seat to make room to work so the driver's door panel can be removed if you cannot open the door from either the inside or the outside.

If you can get the door open, then the door panel should be removed to inspect the linkage and latch mechanism.

Passenger door will not open


I can think of two possibilities:

1) The electronic lock is malfunctioning and forcing the door to lock. From the inside of the car, try forcing the lock to the 'unlocked' position. If you can do this with your had, but it 'snaps' back to 'locked' then it's an electrical problem. Possibly the lock solenoid itself, or the BCM.

2) If you cannot force the lock to the 'unlocked' position, then it's some sort of mechanical problem - maybe the lock is just jammed. Try spraying oil into the locking mechanism from the outside and working the lock until it's free. Otherwise, remove the interior door panel and diagnose the mechanical lock.

97 Passat left front door won't open from outside - will open from inside if lock knob is pulled forcefully. I have new outside handle (not yet installed). All locks open properly with key. I have sought...


Hi.
Heat will not help and can damage the door lock mechanism further.
You can try lubing the door lock, but I do not thing it will help. I think there may be something wrong with the mechanism, or you will get the same problem from outside and inside.
If the door is opening from the inside , then the door lock mechanism My still be working. On VW the outer handle is connected to the lock by a steel wire, or by a metal shaft.
To access the door lock you need to remove the internal door panel. The door panel is held by hidden screws located on handles and by a set of clips located behind the panel near to the panel border.
I have service manual for several VW models, I will see if I can find the manual for 1995-1997 Passat and I will eventually send the diagrams to undo the door and access the lock.

The lock on my front driver door will not unlock with power locks the rest the door will not even open when i attempt to open from the inside i tried unlocking it with the key but it made a sounds like...


You will need to remove the inside door trim panel and check the three (3) rods and plastic connectors that connect:
(a) the inside door handle to the door mechanism
(b) the inside door lock knob/outside key lock cylinder to the door mechanism
(c) the outside door handle to door mechanism.

Most likely one (or more) of these rods have either become loose or the plastic lock clips have broken.
The "L" end of the rod goes thru the hole of the clip and the clip has a pivoting "U" shape that goes over and locks onto the rod.
Based on the your year (2000) it might be a good idea to remove all clips and rods; and remove the entire door mechanism. Inspect, clean, lubricate, and re-install it.

Front outside door latch does not work


Remove the inner door panel which allows access to the door lock. Remove it and you should be able to remove the outer latch mechanism by removeing screws from the inside. Check both the lock mechanism and the latch for whatever broke or bent.

Need detailed diagram of 1998 latch mechanism to remove connections from it


there is no diagram... the latch is also a non-servicable latch, so if your problems in the latch- it needs a latch. i would look more closely at the outside door handle itself as i have seen a few of them break on the E series vans.you may be able to get detailed instructions thru autozone.com or @ autozone. hope this helps and good luck

Door lock


When the actuator moves the latch up, it connects the outside door handle to the opening mechanism. When the latch is down, the outside door handle is disconnected from the mechanism so that it cannot be opened. So in this case your latch needs to be replaced, the latch or one of its parts is malfunctioning. the outside handle is never beening disconnected from the latch. remove the door panel visually inspect for damage, and take the proper repair
