Update on this:

VW UK have stopped giving out any goodwill on these since July 2015.

As of now, the part is £250 + VAT so £300 altogether from a dealer. TPS is the same price

The other option is to go for an exchange service but BBA Reman have quoted £250 + VAT which is the same as getting a new part from VW

Another option is to buy off eBay another remanufacturered part on an exchange service but I need the part number so I can match them up as apparently, there are different variations. The problem is, the unit is located quite deep inside the engine bay underneath the battery and housing.

I did send an email to an Audi parts dealer on ebay who said 1K0698517B would fit after checking the VIN. And thats listed at £225

My father in law had a 56 plate 1.6 Match, I sold it for him last year.

He'd had it from new and only covered 43k on it with full dealer SH.

He was offered £2k against a new Match 1.4 so I said I'd sell it for him.

He kept it mint and had just put 4 new Pirelli's on his unmarked alloys and even the spare was unused so I was confident of a quick sale

Before I sold it the only things I did was polish the lights as they were very bleached, and had an air bag light fixed (popular fault with the plug under the seat) I took a punt and put it on Autotrader for £4300, a couple of phone calls later a lady caught the train and did a 250 mile journey to drive it home, I knocked off £50 for some fuel and she was over the moon.

I was really sad to see it go but the 1.6 meant it would be too expensive for my kids to insure.

Very nice! I like the colour too.

Ive been quite impressed with the insurance tbh. My son is paying £625, 8k miles for 10 months policy with the NCD booster and black box from Admiral and he's only 22. This one's the 1.4 TSI 122hp so a bit more peppy too and relatively good on fuel.

£4300 is a great price. I got this one with 63k on it for £3400, 08 plate although it did have 3 owners and only 1 dealer stamp, rest indies.

Needed things doing but nothing more than £100-200 tbh.

OK so, since the famous fault code - 01435 Brake Pressure Sensor 1 (G201) came on, we've had loads of snow! Probably not the best time to be without traction control!




Nonetheless, its been OK, had a few "oh sheeet" moments but apart from that, its been fine.

So, I thought its time to get this sorted and hopefully this will help anyone who has this issue in the future.

Initially I went to my Local VW Dealer. They have stopped doing the goodwill gestures since 2015. Therefore, they wanted £300+VAT for the repair kit (1K0698517B) or £600 (£90 compulsory diagnostics, £300 for the part and the rest is labour). Despite having an ABS recall from 2017, they said my car was not s,ubject to that recall - and surprise surprise, it now has the same fault as the others!

I did some research and it appears there are different variations of the ABS pump, so you have to find the part number (last 2 letters are IMPORTANT!) from the original unit and get a hydraulic block replacement that works with it. My part number was 1K0614517AE. The repair kit (1K0698517B) generally works with my part number, and a few others.

Anyway, I looked online for the repair kit. Audi Cardiff were selling on eBay for £225 and confirmed it would fit after checking the VIN. This comes with a 1 year warranty. These units can fail again as they are just an updated version.

Sinspeed, BBA Reman and ECU Testing also do these. BBA Reman charge £250 for it on ebay and Sinspeed charge £195 exc VAT for an own unit rebuild or £225 for an exchange unit. ECU testing does an exchange unit for £200. All come with lifetime warranties (non transferable).



So - Ive gone for the ECU Testing exchange unit as it said it would be compatible with my part number. Will update in due course.

Ordered on Sunday, dispatched Monday and arrived today - very efficient service from ECU Testing!






Hopefully it fixes the issue. The lifetime warranty is a bonus

Had the remanufactured unit fitted today

took a while to fit - more than expected as mechanic was being extra careful with it. He was worried about the threads on the aluminium block when putting the brake fluid lines back into the unit.



However, after bleeding the brakes, its sorted the issue. No more ESP light on anymore!



Ive packed the old unit, just waiting for DHL to collect it and send back to ECU testing.


Overall, very pleased. ECU testing offer a very efficient and cost-effective service. The car feels better to drive and the brakes certainly seem to be better. Funny how a little ABS Pump can change a car!

Thanks guys,

No more light for the ESP yet and its all working as it should. Ive tested it over the past few days just to make sure so very happy so far.

However, the car is creaking and groaning when going over bumps in town as well as when turning the steering wheel full lock. It sounds like its coming from the driver's side. I got it checked over and its the drivers side top suspension mount. The good thing is, its intermittent at the moment. Sometimes is dead quiet and other times its groaning badly!

Luckily, this time the parts are relatively cheap - £40-£50 for both top mounts.

Any particular brand recommended? Was thinking Lemforder or Meyle but ECP do a few different brands that Ive never heard of

So, I noticed that the drivers side mirror was catching against the bottom housing. Took a closer look and it appeared that it had somewhat sagged.

I took the mirror out and decided to pull it off from the backing plate to make it straight. Used a hairdryer to try and melt the glue. Unfortunately, I was nearly done and it smashed!

So Ive stuck it on to the backing plate with superglue and awaiting the two replacements (as apparently they will have different magnifications or something so best to do 2 together).
