Have no solder iron and need Car in morning, so had to improvise with a bit of wiring from a light fitting, duct tape, bandage tape and insulating cable. No doubt not fully water tight never mind itís only twisted and taped but hopefully see me until I can get to auto mechanic.

Strange how 3 mechanics missed this... and all were asked and told which wheel it was.

Fault codes cleared in vcds, apart from control module defective; which I am led to believe can be caused by brake output tests in vcds. Apparently this fault can be ignored, time will tell.
Well found! that control module defective fault may well disappear once the car realises it is all working ok repeatedly

Confidence is the feeling you have before you know better . . . .
