    Hi, I currently have this on my 06 2.0tdi, a scan shows that it's the rear right abs sensor/wheel bearing. After reading a few threads on here suggests that replacing the wheel bearing fixes this(common fault) . Perhaps a scan will give you more info. I'm Looking to get the wheel bearing replaced soon, but not in any rush as it's not really causing any other problems.

    I had this the other day, it came on and off for 2 days and now has gone.
    You need to get it scanned and it will tell you what's wrong.

    As already advised, it needs a scan tbh as there are various possible reasons for this, from steering rack, to abs sensors, bearings, steering angle sensor etc.
