Hi everyone,

I'm a newbie and just looking for some advice regarding a problem I have with my 1999 Audi A3.

I can unlock and open the driver's door from the outside but once inside the door handle will not open the door! At the moment I am struggling and having to open the window and stick my arm out to release the handle from the outside!

I have not yet taken it to a garage (a friend who is a mechanic told me it was a big job because of the design of the door) so I was wondering if anyone else has had this problem and whether it is easy to fix?

I have not taken the door panel off inside yet (where to start!) so I don't know what is causing the problem but it is very very annoying and I don't want to be ripped off by my local Audi garage for what might be a simple problem to fix!

Thanks in advance for any advice you guys can give me.

sounds like the rod inside the door has broke or simply come off..

without doubt you will need to take the door panel off to have a good look,

Cheers

not done one of these on an A3 - or rven an Audi in fact... as above just look for all the screws and then pull off carefully!
