i have a few questions:

1. just recently my trunk release linkage shit the bed. its a rod about 16 inches long that connects from the key hole down to the release lever, its bent at a bad angle and i think some water got in through the years and made it weak, thenit gave it. i tig'd it back together and made a few more bends beefier. my problem is the electronic button located in the center console works, but does not unlock the latch. i had to crawl into the truck via the back seats and pull the trunk liner out and manually remove the latch. i dont think the button is shot, or the fuse is bad, but what i am thinking, after i took the latch off is the electric solenoid in the release latch in the trunk lid is shot. any other suggestions?

2. does anyone have service or repair manuals for a 1.9 tdi? any parts like mag wheels, interior pieces like the flimsy cup holder?

thanks, justin.

How do you know if the button works if it doesn't unlock the hatch? Do you hear a clicking in the trunk but it doesn't release anything?
