This is a total nightmare situation. You have to remove the rear door card and with the door shut this is difficult and often results in damage to the card. Then behind this there is a steel panel bolted on with a dozen or so M6 bolts which holds the window mechanism so you have to lower the window until you can see the roll pin location through the access hole, poke the roll pin out (carefully to avoid door skin pipping) and then wind the window back up, secure the glass in the raised position (again awkward with the door closed) then lower the lifter away from the glass which requires a bit of a jolt to release it. Remove the two black push through pegs that will be to your upper right by screwing a self tapper into them and then pulling them out, push the plastic tubes through and this releases the door lock to panel retainer that would normally bring out the door lock if doing the job with the door open. After disconnection the wiring you can TRY and get the steel panel away. On a four door rear we often take off the B pillar trims and release the door hinges as this allows a little more room but this has to be done with care to avoid door trailing edge and rear panel damage. One the steel panel is out of the way we drill into the plastic look mechanism in various positions until we can release the catch and open the door. If people would lubricate the door lock at services with a good spray of aerosol spray grease, pay attention to the fault codes that register LONG before this happens and take notice when the lock start to act up, the job would be a lot less painful I strongly advise you not to buy a second hand lock. My colleague did this on his wife's car to cut costs when he noticed the fault code, the door was not even playing up. After fitting a second hand lock, the door stuck shut and would not open so we had to do the procedure above AND fit a new lock!

Thanks for your reply.

Hmm..It is going to be as I figured...Not much fun.

I really can't visualize your description since I have not yet had the door card off yet.
We just bought the thing last week and everything worked with one exception. The passenger mirror must have been replaced. It will not toe in far enough to see next to the car. At this point I have no idea what the person who replaced did wrong.

Can I suggest that you add your car spec to your signature as it will save users asking every time, if you know the engine code that will also be great? Oh you can't do this of a phone. http://www.volkswagenforum.co.uk/f26/adding-your-car-spec-5119.html

The first thing I have to figure out is how to open the door. It is a mechanical & electrical unlock issue. It won't open from inside or outside and the locking mechanism doesn't make a sound when the central locking is activated. I ordered the Bentley manual from Amazon.co.uk and am looking forward to its arrival. The downside of the Bentley manual set is that it is for the US market models, but most everything still applies and it is a English language manual.

The two part hard cover did
finally arrive. Another addition to my Bentley manual collection.

Please start your own thread with the cars details and the convenience system fault code report, the lock unit itself is not coded, the coding is in the door controller which is the winder motor.
