Welcome. VW passat B5 estate 1.6 1998 Today I accidentally opened the door and saw that you can easily pull the lock insert with your fingers. Do I have to dismantle the door to fix it or can I just put on a strong adhesive and put it back again? I don't have one screw on the side of this lock. Do I have to buy anything on a rubble?
Perhaps the security has fallen, this ring. Or the screw causing the protection to not turn in completely, but then there is no chance to move the handle. Unfortunately, the door must be dismantled, a nasty thing through the sheet metal to which the glass guides are attached.
The insert should be secured with a screw at the height of the insert. After opening the door above the lock there is a plug and under it a screw for an allen key, probably 3 or 4. This is how it looks
Thank you for your responses, I clicked helped. I will try to insert a torx key 20. If it turns out that the ring has fallen and I can not tighten the torx screw or can I grease the black plastic inserts in my photo with two-component glue and put in the clamp of the ring so that it stays for years and it could not be pulled out by the thief without to dismantle the door? Will the door handle and door open with the key if I stick it permanently?
the handle works, I open and close the door, the lock works with the key closing and opening.
