Rear Door Help Needed
« on: 20 September 2009, 18:07 »
My rear passenger door has the childlock for obvious reasons  :wink:

Today i hit the remote to let the little one in and it didn't open, hit the lock but and open button a few times and nothing. All other doors and boot were fine each button press.

I tried with the key and also using the drivers door button controls and still nothing.

The window still works with the button on the door and with the key and drivers door button.

As I can not open the rear door I cold do with any help or comments you may have :)

Thanks,

CS

does the little lock pin pop up or does it stay down?

if it pops up as said its possible the cable has come unattached

if it stays down it sounds like a faulty door module

Stays down and when you pull the handle inside it pops up a little but you can not grab it to force it up or anything.

If it is the door module how the hell do you open the door to take the panel off to replace it?

sounds silly but give the area around the lock pin a good thump

the solder inside the door module seperates - a good thump might just be enough for it to make contact again and open the door

Trouble is you kind of have to repair it there and then!

Do you have VAGCOM to confirm if it is a door module?

I had this issue this time last year, If your is a 5 dr mk4 then you simply get in through the other side and take the door card off to replace the module,

OK the punching the door didn't work.

Any other tips to get the door open?

Cheers,
