CALL VW! I just had a problem with my 2001 Jetta Wolfsburg (1.8T). The brake light switch is on RECALL. You might be able to get it fixed for NOTHING. My brake lights weren't working, and I called the dealership, and I had the problem fixed (no cost to me) within a week. FYI- there is also a recall on the hazard light switch. If it's the same switch as used in the MKIV Jetta, this VWVortx thread is the definitive do-it-yourself instruction on how to do it...
