Question about 2004 Volkswagen Jetta
In our case, 2004 Jetta GLS, the microswitch was working, but the latch would not lock. If its the microswitch the car won't make that sound like its trying to open. If its the latch then it makes the noise but even slamming it won't lock, and for the alarm to initiate you have to press down on the trunk after its closed. I replaced my whole thing in about 30 mins, latch and switch, a new microswitch came with the latch I ordered. I was quoted $200 at a mechanic and almost $400 from the dealer, but you just need a screwdriver, hextool and the part. Check out this site for complete directions on how to install:
