    just been on vagcat lee it says 167 is the "
    (10) 191906383C
    contact close relay / for fuel pump / relay location/code no.: / F >> 8L-W-999 000*
    4/167 /
    but it also says 409 is the "
    (10) 1J0906383B
    relay for fuel pump / relay location/code no.: / F 8L-X-000 001>>
    4/409 /
    is there a difference between the "relay for the fuel pump" and the "contact close relay/for fuel pump" or should i have both?

    Most of the agu's have relay 167 instead of 409 number relay mate.
    167 is the fuel pump relay of a golf. I replaced that relay with a new one when I had fuel pump problems and it sorted it. 167 and 409 are the same relay

    Hi guys, my car cut out the other day. Won't start now, its an '01 S3. I suspect its the Fuel Pump Relay as the fuel pump cannot be heard priming when ignition is turned on. When i removed the lower dash trim today i found the exact same positioning of the relays as the pictures above. So far this thread has answered a few of my questions (THANK YOU) as i had also expected to see a 409 relay, where the 167 currently sits. Could somebody just confirm for me, should my car have a 409 and should I go and get that part, replace it and then see what happens? its only a $30 part so cheap enough. Thanks in advance
