So this thing broke..


It's the lil Electronic Doohicky that pulls my trunk latch release when i hit my key fob..
I think i need a new one.. cuz it just makes a crappy noise and does not work.
Thanks

This next pic is just funny.. my trunk filled with all the motorcycle parts i'm throwing away from my latest chopper build >.<

The little electric motor in mine shorted out and blew fuse 14 - the ccm fuse - which also controls the security for the car. Because this fuse was blown, the relay that allows the car to start was not engaged and I was left stranded.

I got a new actuator at the dealer for about $50.00 part number VW 3B5-827-061-C

You have to unbolt the bracket that holds the lights for the license plate. I ended up not removing it from the trunk lid, but just rotating the bracket around so I could get to the screws that hold the actuator to the bracket.

Replace the old one with the new one and you are good to go.

Pictures that I took at the time just because:





Ha, same color car.

well.. mine stays in place when i hit the button..
So i know it's not just moving outta place.

Also. fuses seem good.. it just Groans when i hit the button and doesnt actually do anything.. if i pull on the wire that it actuates. the trunk pops so i know it's not broken there.
I think the thing just failed is all and won't pull anymore.
