Hello Everyone,

I got a brand new GLI this May and I am having trouble with the trunk release. It fails to pop all the way open about half the time. When it fails, it opens a few inches without going up all the way and I have to pull it the rest of the way. I have not yet had it completely fail to open, i.e. stay completely closed when I push the button.

I am wondering if this is something I can easily fix at home without having to drop it off at the dealer.

If it happens that I do have to take it to VW, can anyone confirm that the basic warranty covers this issue?

Thanks,


TT

I have a 2009 Jetta. The trunk only fully opens by itself in warm or hot weather. Otherwise, I have to lift it myself.

It's supposed to fully open with the key fob? Mine only pops up out of locked position and I have to open it all the way manually.

Or is it only specific models that have it?

Trunk-lifting torsion rod or spring is weak? Loose bolt in lifting mechanism which changes the geometry and leverage of the lifting system?
