    What symptoms do you have Mike? If you have both lights on in the cabin it could indicate a AFM failure. Any mods to the car at all?

    hope that's a warranty claim. If not I would not be surprised if they say that the pump took something else out as well and until they changed the pump they could not see the other fault. You may find a huge hole in your wallet and the car exactly the same afterwards

    I had this on my MK4 after some muppets at the local vx stealers managed to destroy my whole breaking system. Took about 9 months and 5k's worth of warranty work to get it working again.
