Finished this job thanks to the great write up by dbest. Prob took eight hrs but I think I could get through it again in three knowing everything. I feel like a dumbass because ECS has the OE BG pump but I didn't see it when buying... I'm not too worried because the old pump made it 94k miles. I also checked the VW campaign/recall site and found nothing related to my car for a water pump swap.

On the plus side I got the new pump in and no more leak, just gonna keep an eye on the levels and make sure im good.
BA is one of the later revisions. i don't know when it was officially released, but i doubt it came from the factory on a 2011. When i bought my replacement pump in March 2014 the latest revision was AT.

I see the plastic chunk now that I'm at the computer. I wonder if the bolts were over tightened. Tell me you guys are using a torque wrench...

My 2012 came with the BA version pump. Manufactured in Sept 2011. CCTA engine. It's still in the car at 75k miles.

The confusion is probably due to the BA pump being for the CCTA and the AT pump being for the CBFA engine. The revisions are alphabetical for the pumps for the same engine, but not necessarily for both engines. The latest pump for the CBFA is revision BG. The CCTA pump is up to revision DD, and CQ came before that.

so can a CBFA revision BG pump be installed in a CCTA engine?? what is the actual difference between a CBFA and a CCTA waterpump???

is there a BIG difference between them that it won't work in a CCTA engine?? OR maybe will work, does anybody know this??

Another whole hearted "thank you" here.

Had to remove the radiator fan, and i had the extra noise pipe to disconnect, but otherwise spot on.
