cable isn't working or the tab/latch on the fuel cap door is binding. Have one person releasing the door while at the same time another person gently prying the door open. Then see what is going on inside with the mechanisms.

how i can open back door passat 1998

User Avatar

The rear doors on a 1998 Passat will not open if the lock is engaged, the child proof switch has been flipped, or the door release is broken. Repairing this problem begins by narrowing down the root cause.

I had the same problem with my '96 Passat when i got it. All i had to do was to put my key in the driver side door and wait until all the doors were unlocked. That unlocked my fuel door as well. you.

You would need to pry the door panel off and then play with the door lock and handle rods from the inside.

The rear door handle, on a 2012 Volkswagen Passat, can be removed by first removing the decorative cover. Remove the retaining screws and the linkage.

The site below shows a detailed series of photos. You will not be impressed when you dismantle the door. The lock mechanism is, sadly, only one example of the poor engineering which VW now seems to specialise in. http:/www.taligentx.com/passat/maintenance/doorlockmechanism Hope that this helps.

I had a similar problem with my Passat. The back seat floorboard was soaked. Found out that the seal on the Moon Roof was not functioning properly and the water leaked down through the door on the floorboard. Volkswagen fixed it immediately. They told me it was a common problem. Good luck.

The original Passat Wagon was first introduced in 1973. The body types offered were two and four door sedans and similar looking three and five door versions.

Open the keys with the door.

The trunk automatically locks when the central locking is activated. Do you mean that the trunk remains unlocked even when the car doors are locked? The lock systems on these cars are not good either in terms of logic or manufacture. You may find this link, which details the repair to a door lock, helpful. http://www.taligentx.com/passat/maintenance/doorlockmechanism/

when you open the door to get in and drive, it is on the end of the dash, you cant really see it unless you are looking

User Avatar

in my passat they're inside the dash. open the drivers side door. on the left side of the dash (the part that actually touches the drivers side door when the door is shut) there is a panel that is removable. take that off. behind the fuses you will see the relays.

Use your key to unlock the door.

User Avatar

look on the door jam of your vehicle or on the door itself

User Avatar

Ok the issue you have is that the comfort module lost its programming that why it only opens the drivers door with the remote to reprogram this feature you will need a vw specific scan tool to change the coding in the value blocks you will need to find a vw service shop to be able to do this for you . I hope this helps. ---Mine did this when the bat. went dead---Read more: Volkswagen Passat GL 2004 passat only drivers door will unlock - JustAnswer http://www.justanswer.com/vw-volkswagen/4emry-volkswagen-passat-gl-2004-passat-only-drivers-door-will-unlock.html#ixzz1eVaGFaCd

Hi ! What is the problem ? Have you replaced an old battery ? I had a problem with my keyfob after replacing an old battery. The fob had no contact with the car. I then tried to open the left door lock manually with key and suddenly the fob was working again. Maybe there is need for some sort of datarecognition between the keyfob and the lock. Try Regards Bo L

To adjust a front door on a 2001 Passat so that it will close properly is going to require moving the locking pin a little. The locking mechanism in the door jamb can be adjusted to make the door open easier or stay shut. If the lock sticks it can be lubricated with Liquid Wrench or WD-40.

If you have had any luck since you posted would you please help me with same problem
