    It's called the drivers door lock pin.

    Yes it's possible and i've done it before

    You would need a 2 way rocker switch thats open circuit at rest. One pin of this would go to earth, one to brown/red which is lock and one to brown/white which is unlock. All wires can be found at the locking unit in the drivers kickpanel

    If you wanted to make it like factory you could get the lower DIN pocket from a cabby and use one of those switches

    Look at different electric window switches as that could be used, maybe the passenger one from a MK4 carefully cut into the drivers tweeter cover?

    Other than that use two small push button switches from maplins
