Default List of HPFP Failures

I thought a nice list summarizing every failure reported here could maybe be useful to some people here for myriad reasons. I'll use the following format:

User:
Car:
Location:
Build Date:
Failure Date:
Mileage: (at time of failure)
Failed HFPF Part Number: (try and get this at the dealership - see sample below)
Failed HFPF Build Date: (see sample below)
New HFPF Part Number:
New HFPF Build Date:
Outcome: (Warranty, insurance, or out-of-pocket?)
Link to Thread

This is a sample a member posted of his HFPF part number(s) and build date

BOSCH 011
0 445 010 508
CR/CP4S1/R35/20
03L 130 755 A
01 170809 <- supplier (?), date of production (ddmmyy)
BPT0442
0007

This list is the product of many people's contributions, and they are all appreciated! Please post if you see more failure threads, and I'll update the list. Also, for those of you in the US, please report your failure to NHTSA. Then the issue can get more attention like it has in the article posted here: http://forums.tdiclub.com/showthread.php?t=292279

One last note: This thread is for listing failures only, not for discussions. Moderators regularly do housekeeping here to keep discussion out of it. Thanks.

Using the format provided by the lead post here is my story:

User: MonicaC
Car:2010 JSW TDI
Location: Knoxville Tennessee
Build:Where would I find the build date? I took delivery on 11/5/09
Failure: 6/2/2010
Mileage at failure: 8,076
Outcome: Negotiated with my own insurance company. They paid from my comprehensive coverage [less my deductible, of course]. Total bill with labor was: $9248.27

My insurance company tested the fuel in the tank. It was diesel and it was not contaminated. I have pictures of the system as they pulled it apart and I have all the parts [except the tank] in my garage.

Both my insurance company and I are very interested in possibly going after someone else [hint hint VW] to pay us back if it is a failure of design.

Keeping my eyes and ears open.

My HPFP failed;
Build Date-early 09 Sportswagen DSG TDI
Failure Date 7/01/2010
Mileage-9,750 miles
VW is paying for new fuel system. I am going to sell the car as soon as I get it back. I do not want to worry about it failing again.

This thread is to be used as a listing of people who have had fuel pump failures. There are numerous other open threads for discussion of the issue.

Please consult the FAQ on this issue that is stickied at the top of the MkV and MkVI sections, as well as the numerous other threads on this topic.

So of the 24 listed to date, the majority are 2009 cars, and most of the 2010 models have 2009 build dates (or when build date is unavailable, seem likely to be 2009 build based on mileage and date of failure). I only see one that is a confirmed 2010 build car. Granted that this is still a very limited sample, that could be significant.

I've been asked by a few members to keep this as a list only thread, not a place for discussion. There's plenty of other threads on this issue that we can have discussion on, so I'm going to prune anything that's not a listing of a failure.

Going forward, please keep this thread free of discussion. Please consult the HPFP FAQ that is stickied at the top of the MkV and MkVI forums, use the search function, and then if you can't find the answer to your inquiry in one of those threads, or at least a thread to post the question in, please start a new thread.

Thanks!

Remove mine

initial diagnosis was an error.

Problem turned out to be a bad/broken wire to an injector sending fuel pressure errors. Wire was replaced by vw under warranty quickly.

Been driving it for a few weeks and no issues.

It still put my family in danger on a busy highway in la, but it was not a hpfp failure.

Sorry for the false alarm. I jumped the gun.

Approx. 57k miles, purchased in No. California from the first roll out Summer '08.
No warning signs
Repairs quoted at ~$6k. Have extended warranty, but they're arguing the fuel filter is wear and tear part.

Will update

Question Questions . .



Is your vehicle a TDI four banger like our Jettas/Golfs or does it have the six cylinder engine?

Have you been using biodiesel or perhaps any additives?

VW would not cover the repairs needed?

Repairs which involved? Details please?

Sorry for all of these questions, but yours is the first I've heard about from 'down-under.'

ACC: Does your 08 in Australia have the same "new" TDI engine we have here in North America? Was it the high pressure fuel pump that failed or some other pump?
