2 done. great effort, much progress.... you will be rewarded.
2 doors, or4 doors ,you never said, and both have diff, wiring .... (especially grounds)
the ground on the 2door, inside the left rear tail light (at 2pm)
there is a ground screw, and loves to rust and when it does, the pump dies.
2 doors, ?
all that is on my pump page.
here it is , in the pink (pump wires are pink for hot)
ground G402 in the fsm, linked.
the other failure is under the rear bumper connector corrosion then the tank top connector. look here http://kickfix.ac-vw.com/INJECTORS/PUMP/dead-pump.html
The fuel pump activates for 3 seconds at every key on. You can check the 12v wire to the fuel pump (during those 3 seconds only) Pink/black wire - make sure you have 12v going to the pump. You are almost there now. Good luck.
sorry doing server junk.... ( some times the wires even rot off the top of the tank rack port plate. or the connector right there. look above tire, and see tank top on both sides (right side is best)
see damage? you can jack up rear bumper , not axle for great view of tank top. sure can
here is the newer kink. Pump is dead ,now what
Well the wiring is good, i pulled the bumper off, and tested the current on the connector it reads the same as the battery. Gonna go ahead and drop the tank the relay also tested out fine.
Thanks for all the help y'all have given us.
Thanks for the help. I'm just going to drop the tank. This things not in too bad of shape so I don't plan on cutting it up more than I have too. Hopefully I can just buy a strainer and pump instead of the assembly.
We Dropped the tank pulled the f/p its deffintly bad. A somewhat new development after we noticed metal shavings in the timing belt cover is the keyway won't line up with the 12 o'clock mark with #4 @ TDC heres a pic to see if y'all think the keyway has sheered.
