Turn signal switch malfunction and fire... right turn signal activated without switch being activated. After about 5-10 minutes in this condition, smoke came out of steering column. Fire/marking could be seen in the switch area. Eventually the turn signal went out and the smoke/fire stoppped. VW service replaced the switch and wire harnes. The plactic on the switch and harnes was melted and charred.
