Hi guys,
Can you look at the picture attached and tell what do you think it is please? I own a vw passat and I think it is a door handle spot light as was able to notice that a long time ago but now it does not lit. The same hole is on all four door handles. Thanks

That is just a notch where you can insert your key or a screwdriver to pry off that cover. On the driver's door there is a normal lock cylinder behind that cover, you can use your key to open the door in a conventional way should your remote fail. There is no light there.

The spot light you mention, may be the puddle light, which is in the bottom of the side view mirror.

Hope this helps,

Harold.

Hi Harold,

Thanks for your reply.

That notch is also on rear door handles. How is this going to work with the key?

The notch is on all door handles. Only the driver's door has the key cylinder behind the cover.
