  2. Car door won't open from inside handle.

    B5 Garage
    Fateful day last fall (about 7 months ago) my window regulator went. Tired of paying my mechanic for various problems over years with my 2003 Passat, I decided to repair window myself.

  9. My rear door won't open, and multiple doors take multiple pulls to open ...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    .... and I don't care!! :) I dread the Passat doors, and only a regulator or regulator clip breaking would force me back in. Properly dealing with the water seal is the biggest bitch. I use that 3M strip caulk, which works great, but is horrible to manage. It's such weird behavior, it used...

    B5 Garage
    Hello everyone, I've joined here to get some info. The rear left door on my 1999 Passat variant won't unlock, there's no way to open it. It once got locked, and never unlocked, just so. I've tried some tricks, but none worked. I wish I could open it with any kind of trick because when you...
