Apologies for being (very) late to the game here, but wanted to provide a point of clarification/update to my experience.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:
Car: 2009 Jetta TDI JSW, blue, 6 speed manual
Location: NH, USA.
Build: July 2008
Failure: December 2009
Mileage: 22,000 miles
Outcome: Insurance covered it. Dealership contributed to deductible
First, I am not sure my issue can be technically characterized as a HPFP failure. The key diagnosis for the entire fuel system replacement was, "Fuel Contamination," where the canister had rust in it - and the fuel that was extracted from the tank and fuel canister had some water in it. It appeared as though it had been in the system long enough to rust the inside of the canister. That said, I believe the HPFP was replaced as part of the repair (which was covered by my insurance company).
Second, I just hit 40K miles, and have had the fuel canister inspected at 10K intervals to look for any sign of contamination/rust/HPFP failure. Nothing so far.
Last, I have all of the fuel system parts stored in my garage. I really don't want them. Anyone in this thread interested in taking them? I am in Southern New Hampshire.
