There is only one behind the wheel area, that cost around £160 from vw.
The other one is in the tank. Thats alot cheaper. Around £35

Will send you my pumps so you can check if its your pumps that are gone. I wouldnt like to sell them though as they have both done 100k and i can therfore not promise they will last forever.

Will pm you.

Are the g40 pumps same as the gt fuel pumps?
I have had a brand new fuel tank from VW so the pump in there should be ok?

How does the fuel system run,
What does each pump do, and do they both run contantly.
Ive just been doing some investigation, and my car starts and runs, i had my hand on the rear fuel pump, and after about 40sec- 1 min, it cuts out, this is when the car stalls.

Seeing as it is woking do you reckon my fuel filter is clogged.
Really is puzzling me.

It should run constantly when the engine is running

CHanged the fuel pump relay, and the fuel filter, it was still cutting out a little bit but now runs sweet, think the filter must have been blocked?

ALl good now

Probably filled with bits of sediment during the removal of the old tank
