Yep-  happened to my car right around 90,000 miles.  I think it was the blue one
(low pressure?) that was leaking- you have two sensors there.  I just had both
replaced.  I bought the two sensors at the dealer (Don't remember the price-
about a hunnert bucks?) , and had Ron Wood at VW specialties install it for like
$35 or something ridiculously cheap.  THe dealer quoted me $110!!!!

He used a crow's foot wrench and an extension to get it off.  I think I could do
it now, but it's NOT fun, if you have to do it without a lift.  Well worth the
$35 to have it done :)

Change both units though- figure if one goes, the other's not too far behind.  I
noticed the oil press. warning light came on too-  a short or something.
