      is this the actual micro-switch that powers the trunk light or is it a different piece?

      and is there any way to fix a micro-switch, or,
      do you just have to buy a new one if anyone
      knows of anyone could post some pics on how
      to fix or just tell me it'd be greatly appreciated.

      Yes that microswitch can be repaired. When I bought my passat, found out that the light wasn't working and I figured that one of the microswitch solders was broken due to numerous shocks when we close the trunk. So just take a soldering iron, resold the contact, and your'e done.

      I had to replace minewhen my '98 was about 3 years old IIRC, seems like it was $13 or so and in stock (!) @ $tealer. FYI, YMMV, HTH, EIEIO
