2007 Bettle Cabriolet - Passenger Door wont unlock


Asked by Jul 27, 2015 at 09:43 AM about the 2007 Volkswagen Beetle

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2007 VW Beetle Cabriolet and my passenger door will not unlock with the key fob or buttons inside the car. It eventually opens if i turn the engine off, take the key out and repeatedly press the lock and unlock button on the inside of the drivers door. But i need it working as it should as this is a fire hazard.

Your likely problem is the actuator is either A) blown out or B) stuck from lack of lubrication. Try grabing a can of wd40 and spraying it in the lock actuator. for this you will probly need to remove the door panel. Most vws has 2 screws on the top either end of hte door and remove the inner handle panel behind the door latch and the door pull handle then push up and pull back.
