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.
