Audi A5 2009 - Exterior Handle Not Working


Registered User

I was wondering if anyone can help me. I recently bought an Audi A5 2009. I noticed a couple of weeks ago that the driver’s side exterior handle was not opening. I opened the window and opened the door from the interior handle and then it started working again. It was fine for about a week and then it happened again and was working on and off. Two days ago, it happened again but now I am not able to open the door at all from the exterior handle.

Does anyone have any idea why this could be happening?

Thank you

Its normally a faulty door latch. I've replaced the latch on 3 of my doors now because of this.
