I have the same door trouble on my bug. everyone i take it to says that the only solution is to replace the door lock actuator and that it cannot be fixed. unfortunately i find it very hard to pay $1,800 plus for a door lock actuator. is there anyone out there who knows how to repair these?

I guess that it may be easier for you to buy one from someone who is scrapping a passat. I'm sure that you would get it alot cheaper.

My a/c, passat 1.8T have not been pushing cold air on hot days this week, especially in steady traffic. Only @ nights and cool dayz. Even though the ride is awesome, most likely my thermostat is going bad, ordered a complete kit - will change everything when it arrives. (May even order an A/C fan, so I won't go back in there -(knocking wood). The soldering on the doors are probably broken/worn, it goes after a time with the older Vw's, when you give it a lil kick it probably makes contact - a steady hand to weld it, is all that needs and some patients in removing the inner door panels. These weren't made by the VW company but by their partners around the globe. Most T&T mechanics prefer to change the entire unit instead. Make sure your stone shield is on for the weather and all water run off are cleared - there is a one behind the battery bay, these cars are loaded with sensors. Oh!!!! And if your mechanic is too b z, take it somewhere-else, atleast he could of made an appointment - he doesn't need the job.

I feel ur pain with that door story, my bora front passenger door is giving that same trouble, no solution so far, my straighner say that he could fix it....but time is the next issue

With regard to the A/C problems i replaced my compressor by Felix Air Conditioning, Mon Repos Street, San Fernando, 653-4649...u can call an make an appointment. I did mine in 2008, no problem since

hey the problem for d a/c mite be 3 things
1. Check and see if the motor spinning....if not well yuh have to get an a/c fan motor (which is d one on yuh left if yuh stand in front d car)

2. yuh hadda check the relay to dat same motor......the relay is to step up the current if its not doin dat well the motor wont come on.....

3. it have something called the pressure switch wich actuallys puts on and off the compressor...dat can be faulty so you mite have to change it....it cannot be repaired....and it cheap too...around 450-600

...if that fails take off the inner panel and inspect. Make a cup of coffee and make sure you have time..
The rear doors are the easiest.

The drivers side door on my Passat just went there is no other solution than to get a new actuator (see link below)

http://www.ebay.com/itm/VW-PASSAT-LEFT- ... 5ae2d7a09c

because to open it an solder the board on the lock is very tricky and you need someone who knows

EXACTLY what their doing and so far there's no one down there that does it to my knowledge even

@ Best Auto their only option is to break the lock and replace it once the door is stuck closed....

If not you can try this :

Here they come:
This was also, surprisingly, the first coin I found in circulation with the new European side.
Apart from this, the only other one in found in circulation is a German 20 eurocents from the Berlin Mint A
