    Passat Trunk Lock Problem

    Yeah there is no electric release. My trunk used to unlock with the vacuum of the car by turning the driver door open twice. But I never had an electric release button installed from factory to pop it open.

    97 passat grill removal

    Get a small flat head screwdriver. There are a few small delicate tabs along the top part of the grill you will need to depress. Keep going around the plastic grill and find them all. If I remember correctly I needed to take it off to gain access to removing the bumper.
