How To Replace The Door Latch Module And Lock Cylinder On A Passat Jetta Golf.




What do you think about this video?

Freddy Hayward: Hey, thanks for the great video, i've seen a few different tutorials on changing the window regulator, door lock module, cleaning the sensors inside the module, and also fixing the lock barrel. Yours has by far been one of the most helpful. I am currently in a position where i've nearly fixed my lock barrel on my drivers door, i've already had to fix the window regulator as I broke it while I was trying to remove the door lock module. So next step is getting the working lock in place, and putting the door lock back on. I really needed some help as I couldn't figure out where the piece between the door handle and the door lock module sat. But now I know what to do! Thanks very much! Hopefully I will finally be able to lock my Golf and stop getting in through the passenger door! lol

George Lawrence: Is there any fix to a broken cylinder lock retaining clip? Thanks.

Chris LeBlanc: Thanks for the helpful video Brian. It seems as though a ring fell out when replacing the passenger door harness. Any idea where this goes exactly, it seems to help the door handle return properly into the door. 

Jennefer Rocha: I believe your voice is very relaxed and it makes it easier for me to understand each step. Thank you for the helpful video. My 2000 jetta's door latch just gave out on me so I'm looking into replacing it myself. It is a manual and not electric windows, however i'm sure I can use this video to guide me through just fine. Thank you again. Great video!

Rich Lesnik: I replaced the window regulator (99 Passat, passenger side) -- lost the "rivets" that hold a platic disc to the window regulator panel, and the pull-tab list wire. The door is now permanently locked (the lock never worked, but the pull-pin and lock cylinder would lock and unlock the door). I need to replace the lock module, and get those rivets and the pull-pin wire. Any idea where I can get them?

Brandon Peltier: Last night I opened up my door plate that separates the window to the door panel. Put it together and the unner door handle wire let go of the hole the hook was supposed to stay on. Found this video on the internet, and was ready to get out there n do it again! This video was informative and encouraging for someone who lacks the confidence. Good job homie!!!

Nicole Hartmann: Does the lock cylinder come with the module? or do you have to get the cylinder separate?

Kelsey Nunemaker: I have a 99 jetta and the back passenger door does not lock/unlock with the remote key portion. My dad and I have been inspecting it, but we are not able to get the metal inside panel out. It seems that there is something holding it in making it impossible to see to the right inside where the handle would be. Do you have any tips for getting the metal panel out?

jeff shaddock: I haven't tried this yet, but I think this might explain the VERY baffling battery drain we have been experiencing. The symptoms certainly line up. I really appreciate your making this video.

Vincent Capizzi: Even though you look like your recovering from a hangover you were very helpful. Downside in my case..the new lock module I installed when complete seems to now leave the cable longer than it was previously. When opening the door from the inside the handle pulls almost completely back to open the door. From what I can see, everything is in its correct place. Any ideas?

Ken Sransky: I have a 2001 Beetle that has the common problems of no interior lights as well as the alarm going off erratically when starting the car. Does the module need to be programmed in some manner so that the remote functions with the new module? Great video of how to replace the module. I tried to repair mine, but it didn't work so I am familiar with what you are saying.

porschefan102: question for you... I'm about to do this to my golf, after you remove the outer panel and are ready to remove the inner panel, do you have to support the window in order to take off the panel or door latch module?

Armando Castillejo: Hey mark... I have a question... I have a passat 99... And my door latch cable is broke... Its a easy way to do it myself!??

briansmobile1: Dealership or Junk Yard.

briansmobile1: Sounds like linkage to me.

mikey: this vid is gona be a big help,thanks! i got a mk4 jetta,but i cant open the door to start work on it,any ideas on how to get it open with out RIPPING the door interrior panel apart and having to buy a new one?

SlipknotMaggot0526: Do you know where I can get some outer door handle seals for my mk3 jetta? They're completely rotted and i'm sure it will cause more rust down the road and I can't seem to find where to buy them anywhere.

briansmobile1: Your linkage has play due to wear or not being properly secured at the cable ends.

briansmobile1: The lock cylinder in the door may be glitched or the linkage may be disconnected.

briansmobile1: @iMatt65 You're welcome. Thanks for commenting.

awaisau393: @briansmobile1 Yes! It is a four door car! if i remove the lock cylinder will the door open easily? Thanks

Antonio T Posadas: thanks body

johnobd: did you every replace the door lock , then too find THE MOTHER freakING DOOR WONT OPEN ;-((( happened me . door handle tab thingy 11.30 WRONG place . refer too pass side for correct location, make sure door opens BEFORE REFITTING LOCK BARREL. or you will be in serious HEARTSHIP. good vid man.

josh w: when i try taking my lock cylinder out it just tightens the handle? im trying to program my key fob

skye orion: @briansmobile1 hear cars break down a lot in the winter makes like ford vauxall renult citeroen bmw kia mitsubishi basically anything that can't cope with cold but it6 doesnt get hot enough to kill cars where abouts in the world do you live i live between manchester and liverpool england.

chabetsvideo: Thanks a lot!, it help a lot solving some problems

mrmekone: @briansmobile1 Do you have to reprogram the door latch module with vagcom? Or is it simple plug and play. Good information by the way, I just bought a tdi golf mk4 and the driver side doesn't autolock. Its a 2003 so it should have the newer inners but it looks like somebody tried to break in through the key silider. Any advice?

skye orion: @briansmobile1 winter spring sumner autumn verry cold snowy icy winters it rains quite a lot all year and quite pleasentley warm sumners and everything between its cool enough not to have air conditioning but warm enough th get away with 2 wheel drive

Christopher Vazquez: So it's not the cylinder? Thank God. I'll tear it down when I get the chance. Any idea of what I have to replace?

aetommyboy: Why would he text you? lmao. You have a bad latch module. Replace it...

Alexandre Landim: Nice video! I think it's not my problem, because the alarm malfunction in my 2006 Jetta is the alarm that start beeping without reason. The doors sensors looks fine, but I can't fix it or even disable the alarm forever, so I need to disable the alarm every time I turn it off, by openning de passenger door, close the doors with the remote alarm, turn the key to the ignition position to disable de alarm, and close the door. EVERY DAY! :/ But thanks for the videio and hugs from Brazil!

kevo ian: hi brian i have mk4 gti 2002 with 3 doors and im having problem with the driver door .......when i open the door the light that is on the door is not working and the head light buzzer is not working too and the door is locking with it self ....is the problem from the module ?? what i must do ?..must change the module ? please help me ...

Nathan Jones: If this was not your best video I would like to see some of your good videos. Thanks you saved me about 500 dollars from the VW Dealership

briansmobile1: @GRANDTOURBUSTA There is, but I'm not sure how to explain it. I put the cylinder in a vise with soft jaws and set the spring with a dental pick.

Mike Douglas: Dude you are a life saver.... Got a dumb question that I hope you can help me with. The drivers door has been opening only if I gave it a quick hard pull. Now the damn thing won't let the latch close when I shut the door. Is this caused from the actuator being faulty? The car is an 02 jetta. Thanks in advance for any more help that you could share.

IzzleBizzleShizzle: Great video Brian. I had a quick question. The drivers side door on my 04 GLI will unlock with the key FOB but won't lock. Do you think its a mechanical issue or will I have to replace the door latch module?

briansmobile1: The cable jacket from the inside handle end is undone.

briansmobile1: lol I get told I look like everybody- usually someone new each day. From Bear Grylls to Christian Bail.

ventureelect: @briansmobile1 Whats wrong with the filming. I think its great.

gregmv12: So yeah - i used your video to help guide me thru the latch replacement. Thankyou so much! (but even with the 12pt bit, i had a heck of a time getting the latch bolts out) After all is done, turns out the Cylinder is broken too..... SO im facing the option of THAT repair too..... Any chance of dong a video for how all those little pcs go together in there?

nattyt10: do u no how to get the door open if its locked shut to start with? also my petrol cap wont open by the button and some times the passenger door dosent open and the driver door mirror wont work any ideas please please help

briansmobile1: @ThreeGreenDown Congratulations! Savor the feeling of success!

PITYA82: Hi Kevo, I think it is not the complet module problem. It should be the button of the microswitch(with red and blue cable) is broken. Typical failure of VW latches. You have to change the microswitch for a new one.

grewal harinder: great work give me good idea,thanks

briansmobile1: @chrisvazquez28 Where it links in is broken off. Don't be shy to tear it down and check it out.

briansmobile1: @ThreeGreenDown Perhaps the spring on the new on is inside and invisible in the new one causing the old one you found in the door to be duplicate? It's hard to say because I can't see it from here.

Rashid Bin Jafar: Hi, My passenger Door locked inside and out. and i cant remove lock cylinder because of no access to lock screw. The door is locked and i managed to remove the window carrier panel. I can see the lock module from inside the door. Is there anyway to open the door without breaking lock module. It seems like the electric motor is failed. Please help. Thanks.

Rostam Buicki: Do you need to reprogram the car's computer after installing the new door lock module?

Peter Kim: I have a mk3 golf and on the front passenger side my friend pulled the handle off and for some reason the door will not open from the inside or out. The door will not open and I do not know how to go about fixing it. I've look on the forums but cant find any help. Do you have any ideas ?

briansmobile1: @Izzyrev Check for broken wires in the door hinge area.
