Isnt there a way to force vw to replace them? I mean seriously! It has been a common and well known problem with the cars since the mk2's, and they havn't changed the design. Is there a site where youcan report defective parts, or request recalls or something?!? I think its lame that vw can know about such a faulty part, yet continue to make money off of it through the parts market. ARRRG!
