R & L standard perspective is as though you are seated in the car facing forward. We should probably use Starboard & Port (or Larboard if you're Herman Mellville) but nobody does.

Yes the video quality sucks. Anyone in North Carolina want to volunteer to help remake them? I don't have the equipment or production skills obviously.

I did it a couple weeks ago. Used the PDF document & common sense. got it done in 2 hrs, taking my time and cleaning as I went.


Buy the pump seal kit and the Viton o-ring and just do eet!

Default Great Video

I just finished my seal using this video and it was a lot of help. Their step by step instructions is awesome. The only thing I have to add is that the green seal on the kit is not designed to be stretched. I ended up having to order a Viton seal from Dieselgeeks. Other than having to wait for the seal, the repair was a success.

Thanks TDIClub for being there with easy to follow instructions in all related to our beloved TDIs.

Runonbeer, I watched the videos and have replaced the seal. My VAGCOM has me at 3.0, but it’s only “Good-n-tight”. Do you have torque specs for the block to pump body? Also, my replacement seal is green as opposed to black. It’s right out of the BOSCH kit. Is this a reason for concern? I can PM pics...

Torque sped aren’t published by Bosch. All of your questions are discussed here in this thread

I watched the YouTube videos and bought the special socket, VAGCOM and even a dedicated vacuum pump for the job. Ordered a BOSCH seal kit and performed the repair. My problem now is that it’s leaking just as badly and appears to be coming from the “Head” bolt at the 7 o’clock position. I’m frustrated by this apparent failure. Any help and advice is desperately sought and will be eagerly awaited!
Thanks in advance!

Default How to video: On car VE injection pump seal replacement video

Wow
High five !

Thanks for the vids ! ! !

I would never have attempted this without em

My son and I did the seals this afternoon in the freezing cold and after dark
In about two / three hours

Bought the Bosch seals and the viton Oring and triangle socket

Changed the seals
Used a mighty vac and couldn’t get much fuel but
Cracked the injector lines and was getting squirts
Cranked right up

Big splash cause I forgot to tighten down the 4 top cover bolts

I forgot to order the vag com and broke the dipstick tube even though it was only a couple years old

No way to check the IQ but it fires right up , idles good and revs good when you step on the pedal

Have not driven it yet

Is it safe to drive for a few miles till the vag com arrives ?



Now if There’s some vids regarding replacing the clutch and CV boots .....

Did you replace the head plug seal discussed earlier in this thread?

High Five Roundhouse.

Sounds like you’re ok to drive it until you can get it checked. You’d know it if it were not an acceptable setting. It would either barely be able to idle or it would hardly want to start and be gutless.

Runonbeer,
I did not replace that seal. I see that someone else had a leak there and modified a standard 12pt socket to remove the plug. Are there any additional precautions? Is there anything else in there that might spring out or fall and be lost forever?
Thanks in Advance,
Tank

Did you try to do this work in the cold weather?
The seals are not as pliable in the cold and it is easy to get them pinched during an install. Also, putting some grease on the surfaces and the o ring helps greatly to ease the rings into place.

The plug seal is mentioned and discussed many times throughout this very discussion thread. Here is one instance but it comes up again and again
It’s a 6point socket that you’ll need.

It also seems plausible that you have pinched the head seal. It’s very important to use a good mirror and a good light to see the underside of the pump head during the job to make sure that it is dropped all the way into its groove and not snagged up on the top of theN108 timing valve This will result in a major leak that is many times worse than it originally was.
