So one night I am sitting in my car and I go to turn on the overhead light and the damn switch just breaks on me! I hear a snap and the thing falls to the floor. WTH? So I take the thing apart and it's actually super glued together. That's how it came from the factory? Super glued? Wow, VW you sure do spend a lot of money making your vehicles. So I look for super glue but of course I don't have any so I just melted the stupid thing together with a lighter and now it won't ever fall off, HAHA. Stupid VWs. Never buying another German car every again.
