Asked by darosievers Aug 20, 2014 at 12:12 AM about the 2008 Volkswagen Passat Turbo Wagon

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

About 2 of 10 times the switch to close the liftgate on my 2008 Passat wagon will work.  So, we force it shut.  Probably not the best idea, but only way it will shut.  Is there a way we can bypass the switch?  Thanks for your help.
