Default Is the driver side door wiring harness issue covered under the warranty?

Hi there,
I have an 06 with an extended new car warranty and I've noticed that the 'open door' symbol does not come on when i open the driver side door and the lights don't come on...and the boot is torn a bit...is this coverd under the warranty? If not i can prob fix myself....

Thanks
M

Extended warranties vary, so you'll have to check with the dealer or the warranty company.

You still have to ask the service writer if it's covered. Sometimes, there are different grades of coverage.

We have an '06 Jetta TDi and I had to repair the drivers door wiring harness today - took about 5 hours to splice all of the wires. Nothing on the drivers door worked except for the speakers. Two of the main wires were severed and about half of them had cracked insulation and were close to failing.

Does anyone know how much a new door harness runs?

Its covered in the 3/36, but I dont think its covered on the 5/60 drivetrain warrantee.

The harnesses are $150, depending on where purchased..Its a big job to dismantle the entire door to do the harness...
