I’d inquire with one of the outfits that can repair carbon fiber bicycle frames. Those guys usually can work wonders.

I leave the key in mine (pull it out after driving and reinsert) and I’ve yet to have an issue even after sitting for week without a tender.. But your mileage may vary. :o

Is it parking lights, or everything on the rear of the car (brake lights, license, etc.)?

Does the headlight switch click firmly in each detent or is it kind of crunchy/mushy feeling?

It's typical of German cars in general. Both of my Porsches, my Mercedes, and prior Volkswagens worked identically in that regard.

Also thinking it's likely the voltage regulator. Replaced mine last fall and it cured the low alternator output.

I've ditched 0w40 and have gone to 5w40 (Castrol, Liqui-Moly). Next change may go to 10w40 (which was one of the recommended synthetic weights in the manual in 2001).

Hey Fred,
Weird how the door glass cracked like that. :confused: No special tricks on the door panel removal aside from care on pulling the mirror switch housing (rotate bottom out, then push up).
