My trunk light stopped working on my '99 GLS within a year after my new purchase. A VW dealer quoted me around $300 to repair it and I said no way. Folks on VwVortex suggested getting a replacement trunk latch assembly and/or a micro switch, but so far I haven't been able to find them on-line. Any ideas?

I had to replace the micro switch on my '99 a few years ago. Trunk light went out, and the central locking system didn't know the trunk was open, and would relock the car after the 20 second delay if I hadn't gotten my luggage in the trunk and a door open in that time. About a $20 part from the dealer at the time, and no big deal to install. Just had to take out the screws holding the trunk lid liner in place, replace the part, and reinstall the liner if memory serves.
