Has anybody had their oil pump fail? Or anyone replaced it? I've read a few threads on ukmkivs, and they seem to die around 100k miles. Mines at 98 at the moment, so this maybe an up and coming DIY job.
Looks simple enough in Haynes, 4 steps after you remove the sump, basically undo the bolts holding it in place, release the pump sprocket from chain and refit. But the haynes manual gives it a 4 spanner rating! :confused:
Symptoms from those Golf's affected include loud "tappet" sound from power steering pump/charcoal cannister, which mine has recently developed. Power steering seems fine, and don't know what the charcoal cannister does.
Has anyone done this DIY job and can point to a how to? Or am I gonna have to do my own???
Anybody shed any light?
