Re: The saga continues... (long)

I share the pain as well, my '90 Corrado was in the shop for pretty much three months and my loaner car was an '82 Rabbit, talk about a step down.  Well, at least it was a VW.  My QSW has so many problems(non-operable power windows, parking brake, etc) that I'm not even going to bother fixing most of them.

My car's passenger side door handle was busted when I bought it.  The only way I found to open it was to reach in the handle hole and "flip" the lever the handle would have grabbed on to.  According to my mechainc, most times when when a door is "frozen" it can be fixed by replacing the door handle.  Jim, how did you end up getting your door open?
