I have a "2007.5" model Passat and over the last few days the overhead console compartment has become increasingly tempermental to where it won't stay closed at all now - at least not for more than a second.
I have had the compartment out of the console when installing an bluetooth car-kit, although it was happening before & after. I looked at the latch mechanism and it just seems the "teeth" are not long enough to hold the catch and perhaps the spring that pushes on the "plunger" that pushes the compartment out, coupled with the recoil spring are just a little too strong for the latch spring to counter....
Has anyone identifed a "fix" other than swapping it out, and did having the dealer swap it out fix the issue? Are others having this issue with newer 07 models?
The car has just over 2K miles on it so I guess its still "settling in". Kind of frustrated if this is what I have to go into the dealer for (although I can get the radio TSB applied at the same time...)
