Golf 4 tdi leaking diesel pump

Post by cmpelser » Thu Apr 26, 2018 5:03 pm

Guys,
Where can I get a seal kit? Need to do this very soon. Pump is leaking and I'm starting to loose power now too, think it's probably sucking air or loosing pressure, sometimes ideling high also.
Can't seem to find the seal/repair/rebuild kit anywhere!

only VW themselves for the kit or try Bosch(diesel electric)
DO NOT try this trick of doing it in the car as some videos advise. take the pump off and do it upright in a bench. If you get it even remotely wrong while it is in the car you WILL end up breaking the pump shaft - ask a few members here.
