Yes, its the 3rd day of driving my mk1, and its decided to no longer let me in (or out for that matter) of the drivers door. NOT AMUSED!


Can i get the door card off with door shut, and what do i need to look for? feels like the door handle opening spring is missing, the handle is very floppy. The lock works fine, but the door wont open.

Help/Tips appreciated!!!

I think the door card comes 0ff from the bottom first but not 100%.

Someone will be along to help soon.

Probably don't need two threads about this though.

The spring tension you (can't) feel is in the latch, not the handle - it sounds like a rod has come off or a plastic clip holding the thing has broken. Open your passenger door and remove the door card (5 min job with a long phillips screwdriver and a bit of patience). Once the door card is off, have a close look at the rods between the lock, handle and latch. Learn them - now you'll know what to look for in the driver door and suss out what ain't quite right.
