  • Thank you so much for the correct information, all the other forums are not as clear as this one, and do not mention the “click inside the door” statement. It makes it work and follow easily.
    Mr Fix, your my VW hero, you saved me from an early morning visit back to the dealer.
    Thank you :-)
