    Get a cheap scanner and read the codes yourself if you like - I did. Mine was EGR valve - bet yours is too. If you can tell one end of a spanner from the other they aren't that hard to do - or you might get away with cleaning it. I assume it's 1.6 petrol - and it'll be the 8v not the 1.6 FSi if it's a 5 speeder.

    The emissions light comes on if ANY sensor the car as fails, it could be anything.
