    Hello,
    Been looking at an a3 for th missus and the one we have been to see (from friend of family x lease handback) has an error code P261a coolant circulation pump open circuit. The car is a 09 2.0tdi 140bhp. From what i have read this is the pump that circulates water around the engine when it has been turned off..Is this correct? Would this cause any issues? If we do decide to take the plunge i will disconect pupmp and clean the connectors etc to see if this does the trick but if not i will replace. Has anyone else has this error?

    cheers

    Check out my youtube fix for failed Auxiliary water pump fix, you can drive you car for ever with this fault but the hearting will not function 100% ie will be only warm, as the pump forces water into the heating system. I got the wrong part but I made a bracket to seat it and still working strong : Audi VW Auxilary Water Pump Fault code P261A VAG Audi A3 p8 Diesel :
