Hi Just an update on the outcome of mine. Like to hear some good comments and insight. If your are for a different car, select that vehicle series before searching for the diagnostic codes because not all used by one manufacture are used by the other makes. That creates a vacuum throughout the entire fuel storage system. My car had the exact same sensor, so Bosch 0 231 002 710 should work beautifully. In later car models, the car's computer can usually keep the vehicle running, but the engine warning light on the dashboard goes on to warn the driver. The vehicle service manual should be consulted for more information on possible causes of the fault, along with required testing.
Call VoA and ask them if you will get warranty coverage as an emission system problem. The problem is strictly related to an issue with the electrical circuit. Some car manufacturers then close the vent solenoid but leave the purge solenoid open.

The fault was cleared and the warning light went off, but came back on within a couple of hours.
Is this a reasonable price to fix? My question is what is the difference between the two sensors? Any advice is greatly appreciated A3 2. My warranty ended at the end of last month, I had no claims in three years. Sorry to hit this slightly older thread. Worth asking the dealer and potentially opening a case with VoA.
