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

Probably get more help in the correct forum (this is for the B9 chassis) yours I think is B8, maybe older.

There's a few threads about this, but for the passenger side which tends to be at fault "white grease to the linkage between the handle and the mechanism in the door" if that doesn't work may need someone to look at it. I'd do a search on here, wont be the only one who's had this
