I wish this video could have been done on a bench. I would not do this while on the car.

Way better off doing it in the car. The timing belt will hold the pump in the on cam position.

Perhaps you should actually watch the video.

Its better to do in the car if your are only replacing head and top seals, but if want to replace front seal or timing piston cover seals and bottom sensor (cant remember what its called right now), then you have to remove pump to do on bench.

I easily replaced the large O-ring on the driver's side while the pump was in the car, and this video was a large help with that. In addition to the fantastic writeup by DieselGeek.

It's sad to think about how many people go through their entire lives and never find an online resource as helpful as Fred's. To those poor lost souls the internet is nothing but porn, pop-up ads, and Aunt Rita's inane facebook messages.

This thread has motivated me to make another donation to TDIClub as a sign of my ever-increasing appreciation for community members who are so generous with their time and knowledge.

I just did this job - one note !! DO NOT forget to tighten the nut for the fuel shutoff wire !! Dont ask how I found this out !!! I got in a hurry to finish and failed to tighten it fully - had it start fine and just die for no reason - until an hour later i figured out my mistake.

One other note - YOU REALLY need the mirror to make sure the o ring is seated on the bottom ...

Just my 2cents

After playing with a junk pump on the bench and watching the video, I'm comfortable doing this if I ever need to. I used to be scared of it, but now, I'm confident I can do it right the first time. Thanks, Robby.

I just did the IP seals on my 2002 beetle yesterday and it went great no more leaks and the video helped so much to watch it being done. Today I just finished the timing belt kit from Dieselgeek.

Funny thing when I was looking at the videos. I noticed there were about 3-5000 views then there was another video listed about Cancun and it had over 2,000,000 views. I wonder if it had anything to do with the girls in the bikinis?

I did mine Friday. Without the video I would have pulled the pump and taken to a rebuild shop. Saved me a bunch of money. Thanks for the excellent job. As a side note the fuel leaking down on the alternator took it out, so had to replace it also. Replace 90A with a 120A.
