John down on the gold coast.

When the pump leaked on my 97 Passat, I had it replaced altogether. It wasn't cheap. On the other hand, my mpg's rebounded from 35 to 45 overnight! Sometimes I miss that car and its relative simplicity...

Good luck with your seals.

Al in Ashford. I've replaced the top, head and the front seals at different times. I run WVO and it is hard on seals. What seals are you leaking from?

For real, I donít rememver which seals are called what!

Is there a good diagram online with labels ? Or I can do another search, yet last time I did a search for that I got confused, they show diagrams without labels and about 5 different versions of the pump depending on if you have AC itís supposedly larger?

I have the ALH motor. I believe we have the same pump. If you like we can get together and compare since we are so close. Send me a PM.

If somebody could draw on the picture of the pump above and indicate where are the top, head, and front seals, that’s be great.
I think there’s some O-ring seals for the four hard lines out to the injectors.
Any other seals?

Pete in Ellington.

New owner of fixed '11 JSW MT.

Not drawing any pictures, but the seals that are usually the culprits are as follows. If you look at the pump you will see four major parts: a. The Cover, b. The Quantity Adjuster under it, c. The Pump Body under the QA, and d. The Head with the fuel lines attached to it. There is a seal between the Cover and the QA, one between the QA and the Body, and one between the Body and the Head. They can be replaced without removing the pump from the car if you are VERY careful. HERE is how it is done. As Tim in Hebron said, there is a special tool needed to remove the triangular headed bolt.

What does this have to do with the OP's question about IP seals? Why not start your own thread in the appropriate Forum.

The title of the thread was Ct TDI owners roll call.



Being a Ct owner of a tdi I responded to it. Interested in talking to fellow CT TDI owners about Ct emissions tests.
