Lightbulb Mk7 Common issues and resolutions

Purpose of this thread is to inform other mk7 owners of issues they've discovered and what has been done to resolve that issue if anything.
Please feel free to comment and add your issues as well.

One I've noticed is the fuel door on the car is a completely different shade of black than the rest of the car and sticks out like a sore thumb. Will have this addressed when it goes for service and report back.

Leaking rear window wash nozzle after use. It dribbles.
Front drivers side wiper doesn't make full contact on the down stroke.

Haven't taken these into the dealer yet.

Leaking rear window nozzle. Dealer inspected and is ordering new nozzle per bulletin.

Going along with the nozzle, mine was the first 15 TDI the service dept has seen and as such all of the techs came over to ogle it and prod under the hood.

Right... But what should have taken 15 minutes for the diagnosis and looking up the fix ended up taking an hour and a half. But hey i got a free carwash and VW hat out of the deal.

Update; Dealer has agreed to order a new fuel door and color match it .
After informing them of the issue they have now looked at all he mk7 colors and noticed they all don't match the body panel, silver being the worst aparently.

Sticky thread. Let's keep this about problems and resolutions. If you need to discuss a particular problem in depth, please do so in a new thread so that this one doesn't get diluted with random discussion.

Overhead 'vanity' light on driver side does not work.

I'm assuming a fix would require removing the headliner?! Maybe I shouldn't mention it. I can live without a light that I would never use, but don't need any squeaks from a reinstalled headliner.

Editted 3/23/15:
I can also report that my malfunctioning vanity light was user error.

You have to open the mirror slide AND (emphasis) have the mirror facing your face. If you push the visor fully out (mirror facing lap), it shuts the light off.

iPod connection wasn't working correctly with my iphone 5s. Dealer redid a programming of some kind which fixed it... for 1 day. Resolution? Convince Telus to give me a 6 instead

Trunk light isn't working - no resolution yet - i've got a bulb that i'll try in the next few days - will post the resolution

My vanity light (under the visor) didn't work either, but once I opened the visor and slid it all the way over (it slides left-to-right on its mount) the first time, it started working.

I believe the intended design of this is to only turn on when the visor is down and mirror is open. Both sides of my S functions this way and don't see why they would turn the light on when you are trying to reduce sun/glare.
