Yes indeed they are! They break all the time. Take 'em off, lube 'em up, spray
some lubricant into the door lock mechanism from outside and through the door
handle hole, too. Sometimes it's necessary to bend the little lever that the
door handle actuates up a little bit, after lubing everything and working it in
so that everything moves smoothly. If you do this, your door handles will work
great. Common problem on VW's. They break all the time. -Josiah
