Just bought a buyback car with these kits still installed.
Looking for any documentation.
Sent a PM to 2micron, hoping he's still getting notifications.

You are a lucky man (or woman)! What do you need to know? The most important thing to do - is nothing, leave it alone and it will do it's job. There is even a good chance that the filter will outlast your car, unless the HPFP fails and the filter then does it's real job and prevents a bigger disaster.


Probably the best "documentation" available is to read this entire thread, especially the posts with pictures.


Have Fun!

You lucky b-----d! I took mine off and sold them before buyback... when 2micron shut it down I had regrets because now I want another TDI... good excuse for a cp3 next time, eh?

Anyway, as Don already said, you might eventually need to change the filter on the kit, but otherwise you are set; did they install the gauge to indicate when it is getting some resistance? It will take a long long time...

So disappointed this product died. Is there no alternative for us who've bought a tdi recently? Aside from just upgrading the pump?

Darkside developments in the U.K. sells 2micron-style filter kits for those of you looking for one

not the same, the 2 micron tech kit filtered the fuel before going to the injectors, and the return fuel, that way if the fuel pump failed all the chips/flakes/dust were contained and not reintroduced to the fuel tank
