On later model years its functionality has been replaced by the brake fluid pressure sensor on the master cylinder, under the wiper cowls, below the brake fluid reservoir tank. You've to remove the e-box with the fuses and/or the fluid reservoir tank to gain access to it.

So would I need to remove the e box and then go to the brake cylinder and go from there? Is it possible for you to explain how I would need to do it as its my first time changing a brake switch and doing it on a volkswagen touareg 2009
Thanks

Yes, you would need to remove the e-box,. because the gap between the brake fluid reservoir tank and the e-box just is too small to reach down. (Needless to say that it's strongly advised to do so with the battery(s) disconnected.) The brake pressure sensor sensor should be on the left side of the master cylinder (right side if you're facing the engine), pointing towards the e-box. You should be able to see it from above between the tank and the box, just not reach it because of the tight space.

Brake cylinder is always on driver side, and and because the pressure sensor is on the brake cylinder, that's also obviously there. But don't ask me on which side of the cylinder, because I have no clue. I'd guess on the same side (I towards the other side of the vehicle), but that's just a guess.

The cars crash only damaged the headlight and the wing
