    Morning the old girl conked out on me this morning (second time this week).

    Pulling up to a junction, slow down, depress clutch, car dies, car turns but won't start, try it a few times still no joy, leave it a min (while the people behind me overtake and look at me in the angry 'what the f**K are you doing sitting there' look) and then try again and she fires up like nothing has happened.

    Anyway have scanned it on VagCom and get the following:

    Address 01: Engine
    Controller: 8N0 906 018 BH
    Component: 1.8L R4/5VT 0001
    Coding: 10710
    Shop #: WSC 13365
    1 Fault Found:
    16395 - Bank 1: Camshaft A (Intake): Retard Setpoint not Reached (Over-Advanced)
    P0011 - 35-10 - - - Intermittent
    Readiness: 0000 0000

    Digging around Ross tech I get the explanation:

    16395/P0011/000017 - Bank 1: Camshaft A (Intake): Retard Setpoint not Reached (Over-Advanced)

    Possible Symptoms

    • Power Loss
    Possible Causes

    • Camshaft Adjustment Valve 1 (N205) faulty
    • Fuel Pump Relay (J17) faulty
    Possible Solutions

    • Check Camshaft Adjustment Valve 1 (N205)
    • Check Fuel Pump Relay (J17)
    Question I have is where is the Fuel Pump relay located? Recently had the Fuel pump replaced - would the relay been replaced at the same time.

    Also does anyone know how easy it is to change the N205 valve? - I have had a look around and searched but can find very little on the valve?

    I have looked at various posts and some people have an issue with the Engine Speed Sensor - though no specific error code has come up relating to this shallI change it anyway - or not bother?

    Or shall I book here into the garage and get her looked at.
