    It may be worth describing how you went about changing the follower, tool required etc for the benifit of other forum members.

    I can hardly see what's wrong with the one he removed in that pdf. Do they wear through? If he thinks it would be dead at 60k miles, am I on borrowed time with it having done 64k?

    I know this post is quite old, but could anyone tell me where you can get hold of one of these replacement followers for the FSi pump.

    It might be as easy as the Audi Parts desk, but I've got a missing engine at about 5500 rpm on hard accelleration, and I need a solution

    Cheers

    Phoned Audi's parts dept, they don't sell any internal parts. They sell all the add on bits , sensors and the like. They said I would have to buy a full pump, which would cost £177.77 inc VAT. Now I didn't think that was unreasonable , but this is Audi in Warrington we're talking about and they can be a bit special.
    So unless anyone could suggest any where I might be able to locate a FSi fuel pump follower, I'm buying the whole pump.

    Cheers

    I can tell you now your dealer is talking poo poo, bought a follower and seal for mine from maidstone audi last saturday, cost me £35 in total including VAT, all I did was give them the part numbers, they ordered them in, job done:

    06D 109 309 C - Cam follower
    06E 127 248 - Seal

    Give them those numbers and they won't even need a reg from your car or anything, oh and they do sell internal parts, from the smallest spring to a complete engine, all you need is the part number.

    Just replaced mine and used the old seal, also, 70,000 miles in and the old one still looked rather good, only the slightest hint of wear to the black coating on the top surface, and a slight wear ridge around the side. I used the old seal when I put the pump back in, as the seal I got from the dealer was a different colour, and also appeared to be slightly smaller in thickness. The old seal was still plump and well shaped, and had good softness, so with a bit of vaseline I wasn't overly worried about using the old seal.

    Glad I've done it as it was playing on my mind somewhat with not knowing the state of the old follower, now I just want a Milltek, an APR pump and a nice map :laugh:

    I don't think I have all the tools required. However if I got the parts and got a garage to do it for me... how much should it cost or how long does it take?

    One thing I would point out, unlike in the guide posted above, mine didn't have a banjo fitting for the low pressure fuel line, instead I had flexible pipe clipped to hose barbs, which meant I didn't need a 12 sided torx bit to get the job done, infact I only really needed a 10mm, 13mm and 17mm spanner, a T30 torx bit, ratchet, extension bar and a few screwdrivers to undo clips, was very simple to do.
