    Its a common fault code you can Google.

    VAG Error Code: 08598/18628/008598/5119/5120/4116/5121
    EOBD II Error Code: P2196

    Fault Location:
    Oxygen (Lambda) Sensor 1 (G39), Bank 1 - Signal Stuck Rich/Signal too High (Rich)

    Possible Cause:
    Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL)(K83) active.
    Excessive Fuel Consumption.

    Vacuum leaks.
    Wiring/Connector(s).
    Oxygen (Lambda) Sensor 1 (G39).
    Fuel pressure.
    Injectors.
    Air intake restricted.

    Possible Solutions:
    Check/Replace all faulty Wiring/Connector(s).
    Read Measuring Value Blocks (MVB).
    Check/Replace Oxygen (Lambda) Sensor 1 (G39), Bank 1.

    Description:
    The front Oxygen (Lambda) Sensor 1 (G39) is placed into the exhaust manifold. It detects the amount of oxygen in the exhaust gas compared to the outside air. The Oxygen (Lambda) Sensor 1 (G39) has a closed-end tube made of ceramic zirconia. The zirconia generates voltage from approximately 1V in richer conditions to 0V in leaner conditions. The Oxygen (Lambda) Sensor 1 (G39) signal is sent to the Engine Control Module (ECM). The Engine Control Module (ECM) adjusts the injection pulse duration to achieve the ideal air-fuel ratio. The ideal air-fuel ratio occurs near the radical change from 1V to 0V.

    Thanks, I'm struggling to attach a photo but ODIS shows the same code (with 2 extra zeros on the end) and above that :-

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    GFF suggested what appeared to be a vacuum test but I don't have the necessary equipment. I have changed the pre-cat (upstream) o2 sensor and so far EML has stayed out.
