    2011 Golf 1.6 TDI high pressure fuel pump timing

    Hi

    Can anyone help, I've just had to fit a new common rail high pressure fuel pump to my 2011 Golf 1.6 TDI, before I put the timing belt back on does the high pressure pump on these need to be timed to a correct setting if any one knows?

    cheers

    No timing required but it MUST be fully bled by running the electric in tank lift pump and engine bay high pressure electric pump to remove any air. If there are ANY fragments of metal in the system from the old pump they WILL ruin the new one.

    thanks for confirming that, much appreciated, its just a few people said it needs to be corrected time but i through that was with the old style pumps so just wanted to make sure 100% before i put the belt bk on, i know i need to clean the old crap out and prime it properly, thats not a problem

    just wanted to confirm i dont need to time the pump up on the newer common rail setup.

    It does have a locking peg and slotted adjustment holes but they are for belt tension setting

    If you have fitted a new timing belt then you do need to insert diesel injection pump locking pin 3359 before you take off the old timing belt. Its the same tool that fits the camshaft timing. Do you have all the special tools? Are you replacing the water pump at the same time, that's normal?

    Which instructions are you following?
