4. to loosened/retorque the high pressure fuel pump sprocket central bolt, is it necessary to counterhold on the camshaft sprocket with the belt on ?
thanks for any input.
1. From above
2. Don't worry about the breakable tab, I had no problem reinstalling. I think it's something to aid in faster engine assembly
3. Use the cam sprocket counterhold tool (TB tool kit)
4. I don't recall having to loosen the CP4 sprocket unless you're pulling the pump for some reason?

Any recommendations for an engine support bar?

I have a harbor freight unit, has worked well for timing belts and clutch changes.

There's always the beloved Herm-o-hanger:


Even comes with its own instructions.

where did you rest the support bar ? the available rest points that i can see is too far up from the lift hook ring on the engine.

would something like this work better:

was quoted $1500 by the dealer, but that's without coolant flush I imagine.

So far I'm shopping for parts. The OEM water pump is quite expensive ($400). HEPU seems to have a nice one (P669) for half the price or so.
I figure $400 or so for parts (OEM but not genuine), $250 for tools. and $100 for misc supplies, coolant for flushing, etc.
so we are talking $800 in parts (rounded) and maybe 5 hours of labour (have manual and youtube videos).
what do you guys think ?

The pumps have gone up!
My dealer has one for $345 here
Back when I replaced my fuel pump, I thought I had a small leak coming from the pump and purchased one just in case. Still have it, brand new in box. It may not be the most updated revision though.

As for engine hoist, it works just fine! The one you linked could be great for clutch jobs though.

That's a good price. I just ordered the kit from IDPARTS. Will let you guys know how it goes. I also found a claimed new pump on ebay for $59. different part number but looks identical to the OEM one. P/N is 010157801 which is for a Tiguan. could be an old one where there is a different part number for the frame of the pump and the rest. Otherwise, correct part number is 04L121011P for a current new OEM,

water pump procedure?!?

The manual calls for draining coolant before removing the coolant pump. Then it also details the painful way to fill and bleed the coolant. I still have a headache from reading it (specialized equipment required).

On the videos I found on youtube. people just remove the pump, dumping coolant all over, and then just refill the expansion bowl and call it a day.

Anybody has any experience with that ?

You can try and drain from one of the lower hoses, but you're still gonna get dumped on when removing the pump.
Refilling this car is easy, but takes time. You can run the two auxiliary pumps with VCDS, but in my experience it didn't help much. First fill should be to the brim of the bottle, and you should drive the car to get up to temp (or idle forever). I believe I ended up having to refill the bottle 2 or 3 times and then it was good. Just keep coolant/distilled water with you!

did you actually drain from the lower hose (radiator) ?
I'm worried doing so will introduce even more air in the circuit.

I haven't replaced my water pump. Just some other work that resulted in a gallon or two of coolant loss. I am not sure how much more could have been in the system compared to a water pump replacement.
