my lock doesn't work either, but its because theres an inch and a half of snow, its frickin freezing outside, and i powerwashed my car on tuesday.
not smart on my part

it might be just a broken pin, i suggest taking it to your dealer and getting it fixed.

mine does that occasionally, i just wiggle it a bit. winter time, forget it...it just freezes out. I'm afraid mine will go all bad, especially since my passenger lock is shot to [email protected]!#
...I'ld like to know what the deal is, too

Hahahaaa... How many of you, that live in colder climates, leave your car unlocked alot more in the winter? I think those door locks are in the top 5 major design flaws in the MK3.

The part that connects the lock cylinder to the rod that unlocks the car could have broken. Same thing happened to me on my audi. Should be a relatively cheap diy fix.

I fixed mine last year, it was about $30-$40. The new version is much beefier than the stock version and will hopefully hold up longer. It's a pretty simple fix and you can do it on your own. You DON'T have to remove the inside door pannel like I did. You can get away with just taking off the door handle.

If its just stuck from the cold, grab a cigarette lighter and heat up your key a bit...try to wiggle it around in there. If it doesn't feel at all like it's going to cooperate, you will have to fix it like mentioned before. Good luck.
