    Angry Drive door handle won't work?

    Hi,

    My A3 55 Plate 1.6 3 door has been slightly temperamental overthrew last couple of days. Every now again I'd get the car unlock it and the drive door handle wouldn't work. I had to reach in through the window or climb through the passengers. Also the anti hijack thing wouldn't activate on the drivers door only the passenger side.

    This is is now permanent thing so every time I get to my car I have to open the window and lean through not the end of the world but a massive inconvenience. I really don't have he spare cash this side of Christmas to repair it just wondering if anyone else has experienced this and may have a temp fix like oiling something haha?

    Many thanks,
    Garry.

    can you open the door from inside the car? it may actually be the module in the drivers side door that isn't working correctly.
    have the car scanned on VCDS to see if there are any faults on the door module
