Question Passenger Door Handle Removal??

So i have searched up and down and cannot seem to figure out how to take out the passenger exterior door handle. I pulled the 2 grommets on the side of the door but it is not like the driver side where there are 2 bolts. Help would be much appreciated!!

Only the driver side has the "locking cylinder" Here's how to remove the handles that don't have the lock:



"Remove plug -3- from rear opening.
Guide assembly tool -T10389- approx. 60 mm into door behind locking device -2- of bearing bracket.
Pull assembly tool -T10389- backwards -arrow- until hook releases."



" Pull door handle -2- in direction of -arrow a-.
Pull cover cap -1- off door -arrow b-."

This is the special assembly tool that the instructions refer to:



Here's how to install it:



" Pull door handle -2- in direction of -arrow a-.
Slide cover cap -1- into bearing bracket -arrow b-."



" Remove plug -5- from front opening.
Guide a screwdriver -4- onto locking device -3- of bearing bracket.
Push screwdriver inwards -arrow- until hook engages."

Here's the door lock overview (#4 is only on the driver side):



Hope this helps you out, good luck!

Does anyone know if this can possibly be done without the specialty tool? Could a similar tool be fashioned out of let's say a wire coat hanger? Just trying to be as cost efficient as possible before resorting to dropping $30 on a tool I'll use at most twice in my life. Thanks plenty!

Get a hook and pick set. That's how i took mine off. Or if you want to save some momey just pop the panel off and you will see how the mechanism works. Really easy to take apart.

Thanks! I've seen your wrap work and was inspired to try it out myself but got caught up with the door handles. Hopefully, I can start making better progress.

Cap keeps falling off (number 1, or 6 showing picture with lock cylinder). Its on my drivers side. I bought a new one, pops off after opening the door like 3 times. Really annoying, dealer has no clue either.

It seems like #4 in the last picture is a little loose, is there a way to tighten that up so the snap cover piece holds in better maybe?

They are trying to say I glued it there, i dont even know how that would work or what glue id put there lol. I got it back after having the block replaced and found the cap on the pass side floorboard when I got home I figured id snap it back in....nope. Ordered a new one and had them try to put the one they ordered on too, no luck. VW dealership.
