    Hi people hope you guys can help out my car failed its MOT on Tuesday because the ESP light is on the dash, i wasn't too worried about it before but looks like ive got to get it sorted for the MOT. i dont really want to have to paty for a restest so if i can get it sorted within the 10 days would be great. I had it plugged into VAG a while ago it showed fault Break Pressure Sensor 1 (G201) fault code 01435. Now i understand its a new ABS pump that is needed what are my options basically? Can i change it myself then take it to get it plugged in to program it through VAG or will i not be able to drive it untill its programmed? or Can i just take the ABS ECU off the pump and send it off to ecutesting.com for repair or is it the pump that needs repairing? any help would be appreciated Thanks Mark

    There is a repair kit available from the main dealers.

    If i was sat back at work I could tell you how many were sat on the shelf at every VAG dealer in the country!

    I'll punch it in tomorrow if you want and give you an idea of price.

    Cover cheaper aspects before using the repair kit. Probably have to do some sort of basic setting once installed, but I'm not 100%.

    Ie check your brake switch isn't jammed etc

    I don't physically fit the parts. I sell them! So I'm not sure.

    I'd be inclined to take it to a VAG independent. What's your location so you can be directed appropriately.
