Trunk and gas latch in Cabrio 2002

Asked by Nov 14, 2010 at 08:24 PM about the 2002 Volkswagen Cabrio 2 Dr GLX Convertible

Question type: General

I recently bought a 2002 Cabrio in very good condition. It came without the owners manual.
I have trouble to find the buttons to open electrically the trunk and the gasoline latch. where are they located.
I saw two small buttons in both doors depicting something that looks like a key and next to it a different picture I can't figure it out.
I touched both of them , but nothing happened, except for a buzzing noise on the back of the car.
I will appreciate your help.
Thanks, Ofelia

I worked on one once and if I remember correctly they are under the elbow rest behind the parking brake handle. It took me forever to find it too.
