If its not leaking there nothing going to replace your old pump. My car is on the service campaign. Had my pump replace last august.

Remedy Your authorized Volkswagen dealer will inspect and, if necessary, replace the coolant pump in your vehicle.

Per the Humble Mechanic,


GTI water pump update!

The 19k5 service action is out. This is to inspect and or replace the water pump on 2011-2014 GTI.

We will be inspecting the water pump.

If it is part number 06j-121-026- BG no replacement is required.

If it's NOT 06j-121-026-BG or newer, the water pump will be replaced.

Please pass this info on, or tag anyone you may know with a 2011-2014 GTI


If that is true than leak or no leak they will replace it if older than 06j-121-026-BG .

According to the Humble Mechanic (Facebook page here), they'll replace your pump if you don't have the BG version. Some people have still had problems with the BG version, though.

Cool I read Humble mechanic post on Facebook right after i posted here. I'm on the service campaign and got the BB revision last year. I don't know if I want a replacement pump if is isn't leaking. Stuck between a rock and a hard place.

So what's the difference in the part number?

I just checked the site again today, and my 2012 was added to the list. As far as I know, it isn't leaking now and hasn't leaked in the past. But then again, I've only had the car for a couple thousand miles (bought at 24k, at 26k and change now). I'm thinking of having it replaced just for peace of mind.

what's your build date?
check door jam

Might as well change it at next oil change. No hurry if it ain't slow leaking. The service campaign is good til 2018.

I have a feeling this';; turn into a 120k mile extended warranty thing like the manifold.
