Volkswagen Jetta 2.0T: -I have a 2009 Jetta TDI with

Customer Question

Hello -
I have a 2009 Jetta TDI with 139k that my dealer is telling me that I have to replace the DPF (6-7k) because the MIL light is on. Using my own VAG I get code 001148 - Exhaust Pressure Sensor 2. I can also have the VAG turn the DPF light on and off.
Based on that I am going to replace the following part from a dealer that is reputable out of Texas; PRESSURE SENSOR - 2009 Volkswagen Jetta (076906051A). Does this make sense to do?
I would also like to know if there are two of these in the car. I see conflicting information on several different forums.
If this makes sense to do, is there a video online to do this?
Thanks for your help.

Yes we replace them all the time at my dealer in my opinion there is nothing wrong with your dpf this sensor should take care of the fault you have.
