Roger that, thanks for the info. TDI extended warranty won't cover the failed water pump at 47k miles unless I overheat the engine and throw a CEL. Or pay $1800 for water pump and timing belt. Looks like I'm doing it myself. Should have never sold my ALH.EA288 is the family, CRUA and CVCA are models in that family
I'll probably do that fuel pump swap at the next timing belt when the warranty is up along with a larger turbo and delete. Thanks for the heads up!One last thing to consider: if you've ever think of replacing the CP4 HPFP for a CP3, this is the moment, at a timing belt change.
Who told you that? The leaking water pump on our hatchback is being replaced under the Dieselgate extended warranty, as it is a part of the long block assembly, which is covered......TDI extended warranty won't cover the failed water pump at 47k miles unless I overheat the engine and throw a CEL...
Did you happen to notice if the impellor shroud was sticky in its movement?Changed the timing belt and water pump last night after work, pretty straight forward and very similar to the videos on the previous generations. Water pump failed at the bearing, not the seal.
Great job, it started to look downright awful.
I'm surprised by your new idler roller, I thought they all come polished and shiny.
I also got the id-parts kit, and the idler rollers were shiny&polished like the originals.Yeah, that was in the id-parts kit. The chrome off the old one was starting to corrode and flake off. My guess is the water pump had been leaking for a while and eating up parts in there.
Thats interesting...I also got the id-parts kit, and the idler rollers were shiny&polished like the originals.
Also, from the pictures, I'd say you did not replaced the tensioner, why ?
