I am going to have to stop reading all of the good technical posts on the forum - as my car seems to then develop the very same problems/issue addressed in the recently read post! :banghead:

For example:

Left hand vent light has gone out
Fold Flat side mirror switch is bad (the mirrors will not fold flat)
Coolant leak (ok that has been a problem for a while)
Sunroof switch contacts need cleaning (switch doesn't work in all positions)
Snub mount gone

In each case (except the coolant leak), I first read about the problem on the forum before it developed on the car (snub mount was most likely bad before I checked it).

Anyway - I am NOT going to read about transmission rebuilds/replacements or engine overhauls!

That being said, I am glad PassatWorld has such good info threads!:thumbup:

It's a well-known law of physics and engineering -- the perversity of inanimate objects.

Yeah, no. Replacing the gasket is easier and will look better, no matter how careful you are with the caulk. Besides, the "gasket" has more to do with supporting the base than keeping water out.
