VW Passat Bonnet Latch Failure - Fault on Bonnet Pin

The bonnet latch (hood latch ) on my VW Passat TDI 2007 Mark 6 recently failed. The central locking pin fell out and the bonnet was only secured by the catch. When replaced it was also found that the wiring to the bonnet latch was also virtually worn through and would have broken very soon too.

Is this a general fault on the VW Passat TDI 2007 Mark 6? If your Passat has suffered the same failure then please leave a comment
