[Vwdiesel] 2005 Passat TDI

Both of my door switches in the Golf are dead.  The drivers side thinks the door is always closed while the passenger side is intermittent and thinks the door is always open.  You have to slam the door pretty good to get it to shut off.  I've got some new switches I'm going to try to retrofit in the Door Lock Modules in order to fix the problem.  New DLMs are anywhere from $130-160 online!  The switches are $3 at RadioShack and $9 at Allied, so I figured it was worth a shot.
