      Right - it removes humidity from the cabin air. But all that humidity then condenses on the evaporator, which is inside the heater box, which is inside the dash, which can cause the smell if it's...

      Correct, certain Rabbit 2.5s came with the MFD (highline cluster). Don't know the specifics, but my friend's '08 Rabbit 2.5 had it. As for Jettas - it was also available but only on certain trim...

      My best guess would be a wiring issue, and probably with the wires in the door jamb boot that go to the door. Older mkVs had wires here that were too short and were known to break over time. Later...

      This is all great, but what does it have to do with Piech leaving? This MQB/MLB stuff was all coming on line anyway, right?

      Or are you saying with this whole power struggle (along with Piech's...
