VW Golf Door Card Removal When Door Lock Broken

The rear door lock on my VW Golf had broken so the door would no longer open from inside or outside. In order to fix the problem I needed to remove the door card trim so that I could access the lock mechanism and open the door.

Some articles online suggest that you need to break the door card to do so but there is an easy way to do it without damaging the door. You firstly need to remove the base of the rear seat by unclipping it at the front.

This then gives access to the bottom of the door card where you can get to the 2 torx screws that hold the bottom of the door card in place. You may need a torch to see their location but unscrew those and keep safe.

You need to remove the front of the door handle by prising the handle apart so that you can then access the screws behind to lift the handle off the door card. This will then have freed up all the points where the door card is attached to your Golf door frame and it can be lifted off.
