no, the trunk won't close. but with the trunk open, if you manually trigger the latch, and hit the remote, then it will unlock

they replaced the latch. the part was ~35.
Aha! :thumbup:

Thanks, my trunk latch seems to be working sporadically... no codes
with the VAG-COM either, so this may be it. :(

Green_Hornet actually found a possible solution, depending on the reason for the failure, if you don't mind tinkering.
