Engine Management Light (Amber)

Postby trentoid » Fri Feb 09, 2018 1:29 pm

Hi Guys,

I have a 2010 2.0 TDI 170 and have recently just had an amber Engine Management Light appear on my dash.

Using Torque, I have managed to get the fault code: P261A Coolant Pump B Control Circuit Open

I take it this is not the Waterpump that is driven by a belt, but an electronic one... Does anyone know where the physical location of this pump is? I'm looking to replace it, however when searching eBay I'm not sure if the 2015 pump is the same?

The closest part number i can find online is: 5Q0965561B

I'd like to locate it to see if i can purchase a direct like for like replacement. Any info to help would be appreciated as I don't want to damage my car
