Well this information is not all close to my car. My model is 2012 Passat 1.8TSI. I just found out that the fuse I am looking for N0.28 is the fuse for the primary pump. The fuse is located on the side panel of the driver side dashboard.Please verify and send me the correct information. I cannot pay for something that is not correct.
