'04 Jetta GLS. Drivers rear door does not open (unlatch) from inside the car. The child safety lock switch is in the open position. Swich seems like it works fine. Today I pulled the door panel thinking that the cable may have come free from the door handle. No dice, the cable is connected and when I pull the handle it makes a sound back at the latch (a normal sound, like the latch is going to release) but it does not open. Any ideas what is wrong?

Other than a mechanical cable problem, there could be a problem inside the door lock module. Look through the writeups on how to remove the door lock module.

Are you pulling twice? It's normal for the first pull to unlock the door, the second pull to open the door if the doors were locked. This is a safety feature.
