I would push for them to do a complete job of it. Why have it done half a**ed and then have issues later and have to be doing this again. It is under warranty after all. If they don't, keep all the paperwork handy as you may need it in the future. Just can't see balking at doing the fuel tank. You can't force them though. If it fails again that paperwork will come in handy.

Kudos for doing the TB while in there! Make sure they don't reuse the one time only bolts as well.

There was a post by a fellow member back on Aug 21, 2012 where he took detailed photos of all the paperwork showing the work performed and cost under warranty as well as the contaminated tank that they replaced. I have all the photos but can't find the thread.

It looks like it's a good idea to replace the fuel tank to be safe. But they'll do what they agree to even if it takes another failure to prove that the tank should be replaced.

The dealer said they flush the tank at 1st. When I spoke again to the service writer, he said he spoke to the tech & the tech said nothing makes it back to the tank. So. I’m guessing it might be a returnless fuel system.
Not a returnless system ... there is a return pipe to the tank. But, the suction pump in the tank has an inlet filter just like any other, and it's pumping the fuel up to the main filter which it all has to go through. Flushing the tank should be fine.

yes, the hpfp is covered as part of the fix warranty.
Nms 12-14 passats are one stage only, there was a second recall later to update the software a second time (potential check engine light due to low urea injection over80 mph).

Shouldn't the TB just cost parts?Considering VW is paying the labor for the HPFP and the TB has to be taken off to do that. So wouldn't the dealer essentially be getting paid double labor?

I'm not 100% sure but I don't think replacing the HPFP fully overlaps the timing belt replacement job. There's some overlap, but not 100%.

I just mentioned it because to take TB off the crank, cam, and hpfp all have to be locked with pins. So I was thinking that the TB and water pump would pretty much just be parts which are like $300-$400.

I agree 100%
Timing belt job by itself from the dealer should be $900-$1000.
I wouldn’t pay more than $500-$600 for the extra time and material (from the dealer) to have them do the extra work. $1000 is ridiculous to charge when it’s already locked and torn down.

If they won’t go any lower on the price, I’d tell em to pound sand and have a guru do the timing belt.

From my experice on my 14 passat, just the tensioner and rollers at a good discount was close to $300. Plus belts and water pump (i had a water pump failure)
