If you look that code up on Ross Tech's site it gives a full explanation of what it could be.
http://wiki.ross-tech.com/wiki/index.php/18693/P2261/008801

The text tells you all though. The PCV may be faulty but check the wiring to it first.

Also if it's the first scan clear it and see if it pops up as people don't always clear codes and it may or may not be relevant.

This one popped up at 36,100 miles so was that whilst it was in your ownership?

What sort of issues are you experiencing?

thanks for the reply, had a full diag now and its not the valve, the whole turbo charger is knackered:mad::(, so a new turbo and aux parts are needed, just another total parts failure with my car:(.

Sorry to hear that. Although I would have expected more errors for a turbo failure. We're you getting a lot of white smoke out of the back?
 
Zoikes Rob !! What a complete PITA !! Sorry to hear you have yet more troubles :wacko:

thankfully this failure is covered under the warranty and at £900 just for the turbo without the other fittings etc that are needed to go with it, i'm certainly glad it is covered,
if i had to get it sorted out of my own funds it would have waved goodbye to well over that figure in the end.
