    I have a cheap fix for a faulty microswitch in the mechanical part of your door module (the one that tells the ccm whether the door is open or closed). I found that the switch on my driver's door was faulty. Rather than spending the money for a new module, or trying to find a new switch, I...

    So I replaced my rear brake pads and rotors on my 2001 Passat. I noticed that on the left side the parking brake has no effect on the piston whatsoever. I had a helper to pull the handbrake a couple of times while I was holding the brake caliper in my hand. The piston didn't budge. The ropes...
