Unfortunately, I have no experience with removing the center console button. My brother had a Passat with a center console button that I was intending on repairing and documenting when the time came. Sadly, the vehicle was totaled before that.My 2015 Jetta TDI Comfort Line has the push start bottom on the center console.
Once in awhile it reads on the center dash NO IGNITION and have to hit start bottom again.
I assume the same problem.
Guess I will have to do your fix.
Removing from my center console looks to be a might bit harder for removal compared to steering column.
Thankyou for your fix
