For a while my 2K B5 trunk was hard to open. So, I lubricated all the pivoting points. It got a little better. I still think that I need to replace the air cylinder. My question: when you pop the trunk open using the release button, does the trunk pops up, or is it "as designed" that it unlocks and then you have to manually open it up?

Good question....when I first got my Passat I would hit the button thinking it would pop up alittle. It never did so I figured I was just wishing. When the button is hit it unlocks and I maually open it.

You know...maybe I don't want to know if it's broken because I'll probably spend my next paycheck getting it fixed :D :roll: .
